Well, you need to get the source distribution. One key point to make
sure that your environment is corret to develop backend functions is
that you are able to compile the postgres source.

I believe Visual C++ is not supported for compiling back-end programs.
Clients, etc are fine, but the backend is only supported on MinGW.

What is the specific functionality that you need that cannot be done in
a regular function? In say plpgsql, or pl/perl or pl/python?
Those are probably easier to maintain in the long run.
