Could anybody send me or point me to a copy of GMP/MPFR compiled on Visual Studio 2003?

There is a VC7 to VC6 project file converter here:

Although this is designed for VC7 -> VC6 conversion, the following edits
of VC8 *.proj and *.sln files will then allow this converter to convert
them for use by VC6:

1) replace Version="8.00" with Version="7.10" in *.vcproj files
2) "Version 9.00" with "Version 8.00" at the top of *.sln files.

However, I don't know how successful this will be with a large VC++
project such as GMP.

 best regards to all
