Is it actually VS 2019 you want to drop, or the v142 toolset and 
earlier? Because VS2022 would support compiling with v142 also (and 
earlier) but I guess that's what doesn't work.

We have used older compilers in newer VS in the past, but not for any 
good particularly good reason other than being conservative about upgrading.
