I recently installed the community version of Visual Studio 2019. I have a c++ MFC VS2010 project that I wanted to convert to VS2019. When I build the project, I get a link error "cannot open winmm.lib". Is winmm.lib not included in VS2019? Are there other libraries in VS2010 that are not included in VS2019? That would make backward compatibility a problem. When I installed VS2019, there were a plethora of options of what to install. It would have been nice if there was a readme that said what needed to be installed if a successful conversion of VS2010 projects to VS2019 is desired.
