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.
