Can LINK addtwo.obj addtwotm.obj wstp64i4.lib /OUT:addtwo.exe actually work with Visual Studio 2019 tools, if so how?
My setup is as I reported in this question: https://mathematica.stackexchange.com/questions/232846/where-to-place-the-essential-wstp-files-in-visual-studio-2019/232955#232955
I am out of my depth here:
LINK addtwo.obj addtwotm.obj wstp64i4.lib /OUT:addtwo.exe Microsoft (R) Incremental Linker Version 14.25.28614.0 Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation.

If LINK addtwo.obj addtwotm.obj wstp64i4.lib /OUT:addtwo.exe works with the Visual Studio 2019 tools please show me the proof, so that I can keep working on this.
I am currently at the decision point of installing Visual Studio 2012(!) because at least the documentation seems to be up-to-date with that version.
Note that I am working on starting up an open source project adding full Pari/GP functionality to Mathematica. Should this be done with VS 2012 tools?? Or: should I use MathLink?
Perhaps Wolfram is a 100% Mac shop, ignoring the majority of computer users.
