See the `R Installation and Administration' manual.

It is possible to use Visual C++ (there is no Fortran in Visual Studio, although a third-party* extension has been available), but it is easier and more reliable to use the compilers used to build R itself. Information on using VC++ is in the file README.packages, in the top-level directory of a binary installatiion and in R_HOME/src/gnuwin32 in the sources.
