We will need to make two folders on our hard drive for example include_stuff and lib_stuff


after that we go to srcnovalineSrcsToolsWorldEditorexterninclude and copy all that things into include_stuff


next go to srcnovalineSrcsToolsWorldEditorexternlib and copy all that things into lib_stuff


next open srcnovalineSrcsToolsRAD Game Toolsgrannycommongranny_common_2_9_12_0_release.zip go to lib then win32 and copy all that into lib_stuff


next go to srcnovalineSrcsExternlib and copy all into lib_stuff

after this go to srcnovalineSrcsExterninclude and copy all into include_stuff


In VS 2008 go to Tools->Options->Project and Solutions->VC++ Directories=>Select Include files and include there your include_stuff folder then select Library files and include there your lib_stuff files.


Finally we did it :D


Select to release mode and press ctrl+shift+b

Open the .sln with Notepad++ and change the first two lines from something like this:

Microsoft Visual Studio Solution File, Format Version 12.00
# Visual Studio 2013

To this:

Microsoft Visual Studio Solution File, Format Version 9.00
# Visual Studio 2008
