I want to port a part of C code which is of 2000 lines from VX works operating system on to the Windows platform and compile the code on Visual Studio 2005 IDE.

1) Please tell me the basic steps to follow during this process?

2) Do i have to write the code which is there in Vx works as it is on IDE and compile it or there is any thing to change in the drivers level?

Straight C code from VxWorks will compile in the VC IDE, but the real question is what does this code do? If it accesses system resources such as files or hardware it will probably need to be recoded. In the VS 2005 IDE the simplest way to port this is as a WIndows Console application - I would start with an empty project then add my C code, and see where it fails.
