I need to compile an open-source software package, originally intended for a POSIX machine, in Visual Studio. I am comfortable with the ./configure > make > make install cycle, having done it many times, but I have never used VS in my life. Can someone explain to me like I am six, what I would do to begin doing this in VS? I can't make a makefile, because configure is a bash script. I realize I could use MinGW or Cygwin, but I've been asked to avoid that if possible. I already have VS (C++ version) and also SDK installed on a Win 7 box. Let's assume for this question that using a pre-built binary is not an option.

I purchased some software recently from a company txf.express designed to help create an 8949 form for stock trades. It seemed that it was improperly calculating a few numbers, and upon my questioning the software creator asked for my trading history to review the data and look for errors. He then sent me a .piz file and asked that I rename it to a .zip file and open it for a properly functioning program. My limited understanding is that " if you receive a piz file in an email and you are not familiar with the person who is sending it or are unsure of why they are sending it, do not change it to a zip file and try opening it. This could result in infecting your system with a computer virus." Are their legitimate reasons why he should be sending a piz file and asking me to rename it?
