I am looking for AutoBuild and auto deployment tools for my institute. Could you please let me know that GNU can be uses in windows OS and applications build in visual studio .net framework?
Could you please give me some idea about the cost of software? 
With best regards,

That's a rather vague question, and I'm not sure you've reached the
right list.

Yes, GNU software often works on proprietary OS, like Windows.  Among
the addresses you've included is bug-autoconf, and yes, Autoconf is one
of the pieces of software that has been tested to work in that
environment, even if we prefer free OS like GNU/Linux.

That I'm less sure of. There are open source alternatives to visual
studio, but I'm not sure I could point you to them.

That one's easy: GNU software is FREE software - not only can you get it
at little to no cost (often free in price - for example, you can
download the source to GNU autoconf and build it yourself, or go to
cygwin.com and download it pre-built for Windows, at no cost), but more
importantly (and unlike proprietary Windows) it is free in principle.
You may want to learn more about the 4 freedoms that you should look for
in software you use:
