Do you mean gmp_4.1.2.tar.gz ?

For the basics see the sections "Microsoft Windows" and "Microsoft C" at:

One way to achieve it is to:
1) download the Mingw compiler and the Msys shell, then run (in the msys 
shell) the commands detailed in the "Microsoft Windows" section 
mentioned above.

2) The "Microsoft C" section then tells you how to create the files 
you'll need to work with MSVC++ 6.

If you want to avoid step 1, Delta Trinity has pre-compiled DLL's which 
you can feed into step 2. These are available from:
Just select the one that matches your processor.

For '.net 7.0', I believe Brian Gladman has a webpage somewhere that 
provides details on how to go about the task. Sorry - I don't have the 
link any more. Maybe Google, or the gmp-discuss mailing list archive, or 
  maybe someone else will tell you :-)

Hope that helps at least in getting you started.
