I think the OP wants to know if there is a web site or such like that 
systematically lists all the differences between Windows C and gcc, and 
whether there is a program out there that does this all automagically.

(But I would go with Dmitry's suggestion over Aryeh's - I would only 
take Aryeh's route if Dmitry's approach genuinely did blow up in my face.)
