Nice project! I hope Frama-C will help you. I would really like to hear 
your conclusions about Frama-C at some point.

If you do not need to build Frama-C yourself on Widows then there is 
only one source of information:

The most simple solution is to have gcc or any kind preprocessor in your 

If you cannot change your path, you may set the CPP environement 
variable to something like "c:/Program/gcc/gcc-bin.exe -CC -E -I."
In any case, if you need specific preprocessing options, you will have 
to use this variable (or its command line couter part -cpp-command".
See section 5.1.1 in the manual of the Value Analysis at
Note that the last example of this section uses CL.exe as preprocessor.

I hope you will succeed in your project, do not hesitate to ask further 
questions on this list.
