This can be resolved either by installing MFC/AFX (requires firing the visual studio installer and selection of the MFC/AFX component), or I can change the .rc files not to depend on the afxres header file, but after that Visual Studio does not like editing it - it needs to be edited by hand.

Let me know which of these options you prefer.

The documentation developed to explain how to create the TLB/PIA distribution states "Download Visual Studio Community 2019 from the Microsoft website and install it with the C# workload.". I don't mind having to install additional features of Visual Studio Community 2019 provided this does not impact other builds. Should specific features be necessary for building the CAPE-OPEN TLB/PIA distribution, this should be documented.

Individual component MFC/AFX is not listed as such within the individual components that can be installed in the Visual Studio Community 2019 edition under version 16.7.7 (currently installed). Searching for AFX does not lead to any available individual component. Searching for MFC lists two dozens or so components proposed. Is there a specific one to be picked?

Please verify fixes in revision 129

Was verified that there is no need for additional component to be installed after modifications made to the .rc files.
