Hello,

After creating GUI for Unix, I would like to port it now to Windows for better and wider program development. How will I be able to do that?

There something less details on your questions. For a better solution you could had to clarify about What GUI tools you used for what kind of UNIX program? You had to choose what type of libraries you use before porting to windows. However here I suggest you a process about your desired partition-

1. Use ANSI C/C++ libraries

2. commercial C compiler libraries and then follow the process given in this site- http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/y23kc048.aspx Actually it is Berkeley socket-based applications and need a very few changes to porting UNIX to windows directly.You can find more option in this site. Don't forget to visit this of site also- http://discuss.fogcreek.com/askjoel/default.asp?cmd=show&ixPost and here you must go- http://www.uniforum.org/publications/ufm/aug96/unix-nt.html
