It stinks that MS don't have ALL the old versions of their dev tools. After all, programs originally written in Visual Studio 2008 like Ryan was using in the videos will still run today on win 10, so obviously one could still use it to compile things now. All MS do with this constant churn is make development needlessly difficult and sell MSDN subscriptions and training courses, and give everyone extra work to do. And basically they have just made it harder for ppl to follow what Ryan spent years creating. Rotters!
That said, there is a reasonable bare-bones single-file windows "hello world" program walkthrough at:
Ignore all the code sections except the one at the end, as they are just non-running explanations which won't compile. The one at the end of the article is the real thing. It is a bit more complex than Ryan's code, but it is ok, and vastly preferable to the stuff created by the 2019 C++ project wizard.
I tried it in the community 2019 VS and it compiled and ran OK.
