Go to and download
the files listed under "Developer packages".  Install the .dll files in
your Windoze system directory, and point MSVC to wherever you installed
the .lib and .h files.

GTK+ can also be compiled from source using MSVC, although you'll have
to create your own project files.

If you're looking for a more Linux-like experience, you might also look
into installing Cygwin from ... now that
you can get XFree86 for Windoze from within the Cygwin environment, you
can compile the "mainstream" GTK+ source with gcc without any effort at
all - quite impressive!  I've actually found that building XFree86 and
GTK+ within Cygwin and running an X server was easier than compiling the
GTK+ Win32 port with gcc ... YMMV, of course.
