How to setup a public domain C++ module for Visual Studio?

I want to use a public domain module for high precision arithmetic called ARPREC with
Visual Studio.

It contains a sample compilation for Visual Studio 8.0, whereas I only own a previous
version of Visual Studio.

Even if I buy a conversion program, I am not absolutely sure that that is all that I have to
do to use this package, because it comes without any warranty just like any other
public domain software.

Therefore, I am interested in hiring someone for a small project to help me prepare this
module for use with Visual Studio.

Can anyone help me with some type of advice that more properly prepare me to do such
a task that the total project does not cost an arm and a leg and does not take eons to
complete?

Or, if that is not possible, can you tell me where I can purchase a commercial package
that does the same thing as ARPREC, but then has a warranty?

Have you tried to compile it with your version, it might compile without problems

I have tried to work with public domain software in the past, and I discovered that statistically speaking,
it's probably not set up right to be used right away. I would much rather prefer to find a commercial
version of the exact same idea, because then the dollar cost would be quantified beforehand.

There is another package called apfloat which documents more clearly the process by which you
would make it work with Visual Studio. It has to do with making a "make" file correctly.

Therefore, I will close this question.
