Hey, thanks for reply I am working on windows to install GMP I would require another application MSYS to run unix command (configure) and that I am not allowed to use. What I what is just compile my code successfully that Invokes any GMP API. And That's my project need. So Can I achieve it by digging through the code of that perticaluar API without installing GMP lib  ??

Why are you doing that? The package manager that comes with mingw should allow you to install gmp easily, and if you have to do it yourself from source, you should just follow
