What do you mean link it to Visual Studio 2012? VS is a development environment that is complete. If you are talking about some third party C++ library then you just need to load it into your system and then add the directory locations into your Compiler and Linker properties in your project.

Sorry, I have no idea what PD-Curses is. Is there any documentation with it?

Sorry for the late reply, there is some mess going on with my internet connection.
No, there is no documentation given, but i managed to use PD_Curses. But the problem is with Pthread.
Actually,I am trying to multitask in console. How can I do this?
For example
I want to run a timer on the top-right of the screen and at the same time to take input and some other animations or things on console.
I have seen the program(Link given below), to do this I need third party lib pthread.h
How can I use that library with VS2012 or could you please suggest me some other library or useful link? to multitask(for beginners)

Why use the console? You would be much better using proper Windows programming, rather than old fashioned curses. There are lots of articles here on CodeProject that will help you.

Umm....I am a beginner C++ student of 2nd Semester. I am trying to make chess game and have no experience about win32 programming.

Well thanks for the link, I am now beginning to work on win32.
