GTK+ is portable, or at least that what was said last time I checked so I
do not see the point in migrating anything.
I think you should start on downloading the installers on the official GTK

If it were written in a non-portable way, then you might have hard times,
if you are not experienced enough in programming.

Well, I would start by going of official website, and download the stuff
for your targeted platform. There are not that many choices.

What have you tried, and how did it failed?

Sorry for the delay.  I couldn't remember details and I got waylaid by other things.

So I redid it.

I have downloaded the all-in-one GTK 2.24 bundle from http://www.gtk.org/download/win32.php and unzipped to C:\GTK
I have added C:\GTK\bin to %PATH%
I have configured GTK and run gtk-demo successfully

I created a new GTK project in code::blocks and compiled the main.c that code::blocks puts in by default.
I have attempted to run it, but I get a dialog that says libglib-2.0-0.dll is missing from my computer.  It is.  There are .lib things, but precious few .dll things in C:\GTK\lib
