To do this u have to ways :

1. u can use the gcc compiler for windows. u can get by searching(I forgot the URL). Now compile as u would in linux and run the exe.

2. Try porting the code to windows using the VC++ compiler. U can open it in VC++ and simply compile. I would recommend this option.

Perhaps, it's not that easy.. What kind of program is it? Do you have any networking, multimedia or such? If it's only pure C/C++ then it's only to compile but if you are using any libraries.. there could be a problem.

if it uses standard c++ libraries, you can just open it in visual c++ and compile it. if not, you may have some problems.

you can get a free c++ (will also compile c) compiler from

again, if you do anything fancy ie networking, sys calls, ect, you will need to do some work.
