The files mentioned contain the source code which is used for all operating 
systems KMyMoney runs under. That is why stopping you is a good idea at this 
point. You would need some developer foo and tools (compilers, linkers, etc.) 
to continue in order to convert the source code to a working program. This is 
not an easy task on Windows as far as I have heard (not having a MS-Windows 
affinity myself I can't really tell).
