I've tried this a couple of years ago too and managed to build autodock 
with MS compiler. I tried this again after your post on gpuautodock, 
since I couldn't use the Cygwin gcc with CUDA:

I haven't push gpuautodock too hard since OpenCL might become a better 
alternative to CUDA, and hopefully, more users will have CUDA or OpenCL 
enabled graphics card.

Regarding building autodock with visual studio c++: I came across this 
page that discusses building OpenBabel with MinGW:

The changes that needs to be done in autodock are similar to what is 
written in that page. However, I don't know Microsoft Visual Studio well 
enough to make a project that would handle both autodock and autogrid.
