A very quick search suggests a number of possibilities. Have you had a chance to read any of those? Also, a bit more information about what you're trying to do would help, such as are you looking for something to sit on a desktop PC, or a phone, or on something else?

I need a project for windows just like mapsforge for android.

What you're looking for is a rendering engine that can handle raw OSM data, or preprocessed vector data, on the input side and drive a display on the output side. There are many options but none of them is "plug and play". Check this list for various rendering projects: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Rendering

yes, there are the projects for the input side and other projects for the output side. But how can i connect the two parts?
