Could you please provide if any patch available to build PCRE 8.43 version using Visual studio 2013 or Could you please let me know how to proceed further.

I'm afraid I have no experience of Windows, let alone Visual Studio. The
function snprintf is a standard C function from C99. Your C environment
must be very old if you haven't got it.

Note that PCRE 8.43 is obsolete. If you are working on a new project you
should be using PCRE2. The current release is 10.33.
