Does anyone have an idea how to use the files in there? If I have to build it, how do I do it? What is the proper procedure or usage of the files?

Please help, if possible, I prefer a Windows based approach, since our product is to be deployed in Windows.

Haartraining and traincascade are both systems to train object detectors, based on HAAR features for the haartraining or based on LBP/HOG/HAAR featurs for the traincascade. It is based on the cascade classifier techniques used by Viola & Jones face detection framework, which is in principle a boosted cascade of weak classifiers. Go read some documentation on the internet about this technique, before you start digging into the code. It is important that you grasp the principle.

To use the files, create empty C++ projects, add all cpp and hpp files to your project. Build and use the resulting executables to train and detect with an objectdetector. Basically traincascade is the evolved system based on haartraining, so I would just stick to that one if I was you.
