Building libcurl to be used with VS2008 and VS2017 (plus curlcpp)

I want to use libcurl (7.54) as an static library for two projects under
"VisualStudio 2008SP1" and "VisualStudio 2017". But I cannot find any
"how to build" instruction that I am able to understand. :(

I only need the following features:

- HTTP/1.1 and HTTP/2
- Maybe ZLIB

So, it seems that I need "OpenSSL 1.1.0f", "ZLib 1.2.11" and "nghttp2
1.23.1". And what I need as a result is one static "*.lib" file for VC9
and VC15, together with its corresponding headers. And compatibility
with curlcpp would be great, too. :D :D

Building for Linux seems to be quiet easy... :/

Does anybody can provide me a "How to build libcurl-VC15 for dummies"
instruction? ;)

Thank you very much!
