    How to convert .a files to .lib files?

    I heard about a program(gnu libtool), which is able to do the job, but so far I have found only a linux version(and I'm a windows user)!

    Any idea?

    If I'm not mistaken, the .a files are archives containing object code. Therefore they are specific to the OS they were compiled on. If they were compiled on *nix, you probably won't be able to use them on Windows.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
