I thought I have given you the answer.

In the 4 steps I mentioned, which one you have problem?  Does the file come with a .mdp file?

Here is a more detailed one:

1. Start Visual C++.
2.1 If you have a .mdp file, select menu option: File/Open and then select the .mdp file.
2.2 If you have a .mak file, select menu File/Open workspace and then the .mak file, answer "yes" to any question it asks.
2.3 If you only have .cpp and .h files, select File/New, then select "Project workspace", then click OK.  Now select "windows console" project type and select a diretory (the one holds the source files).  After the project in made, select Insert/Files into project and select all the .cpp files to add into the project.

3.  Now you are ready to compile it, just press "F7", you will get an exe file under the debug or release sub directory which can be put in the cgi directory of your web server and you can have a test.

If you still have problem, please indicate where you fail.

I think that file you've donwloaded is some sort of gnu or similar c++
source.
Anyway , that 's different from file format .. that is always text.
I suggest you to rename the source from  ".ccp" to ".cpp" or ".c" and
try to recompile it under visual.
If it is the case  , possibly you will get a lot of errors in the compilation
phase : perhaps it would be necessary to change the name of the <include> files . If this happens , that can be another question.

1. Start Visual C++
2. If there is a .mdp file included, open the .mdp file, otherwise create a new project, the type of the project is most likely a windows console project.
3. Add all the .cpp files into the project
4. Build the project, if there are errors come out, make the necessary changes: include path, lib file etc.

The question was how to step by step compile the file...

The source works I know that.. But I did not know how to compile the source so it can be run on a webserver...
