I am trying to convert a program that was compiled on a HPUX platform.  Is there an executable somewhere or just a procedure that I should follow?  I have over 100 files so it would take some time to go through the code line by line.

Is this a standard C++ console program (a non GUI prrogram).  If so you should be able to compile it with little or no changes.  (Assuming you don't use any non-standard functions/features).  

Is this a GUI program?  Then you will need to make many many changes.  Your best bet is to "start over"--in a way.  Start with a "standard" "empty" windows program then add your features to the program peice-by-piece.

Yes, it is a console program.  Hopefully, I will be able to get it running within a few days.  Thanks.
