you may try to use COIN-OR's ThirdParty/HSL project to build the HSL
dll: First, checkout (via svn)
Then you configure with the additional option --enable-loadable-library.
Then there is some hope that make gives you a libhsl.dll
See also http://www.coin-or.org/Ipopt/documentation/node21.html

If that fails, maybe it is easier to just build Ipopt with HSL from
scratch. Since without MUMPS you need only a Fortran77 compiler, you
could use cl as C/C++ compiler and compile_f2c as Fortran "compiler", or
gcc together with gfortran of course.
For compile_f2c, have a look into the BuildTools directory of an Ipopt
source checkout.
