Please help me in this task..
i want to migrate the project from Visual studio to Eclipse CDT...

as there are some licencing issues regarding with visual studio

Based on the tags in your question, I assume you want to migrate a Windows C++ project to a Linux Eclipse one.

In Eclipse, create a new project, empty.
Copy all relevant source files from your Windows machine to the correspondent folder in your Linux machine (under $HOME/workspace/{project name}...)
In Eclipse, add all .cpp files to your project.
Make them compile: this will take some time, particularly if your "stdafx.h" file includes some Windows-specific headers (Windows.h, ATLBase.h, ...); any calls to the Windows API is non-portable by definition.

I'd suggest to start with a simple 'Hello, world' project, and only then move to production code.

Hope this helps,
