We can't guarantee compatibility with VS 2019 but if you have the v141 compiler installed (from VS 2017) you should still be able to compile the samples in VS 2019 as long as you do not upgrade the projects.

Unless you're building static libraries, compilers should be (not always) backwards compatible.

What they are not, is forwards-compatible.

Static libs are a PITA, and often require specific compiler versions, even within the same generation of compilers.
