I haven't done Windows development in quite a while, but I would suggest
that you need to get the windows source zip file, unzip it and add it to
your VS project.  I'm less than ignorant in regards to the details of any
modern version of VS, but I would put down a few pennies that this would
solve your build problem.

You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I
thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible
things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I
take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe.
