The doc tells how to compile CDDA with Visual Studio https://github.com/CleverRaven/Cataclysm-DDA/blob/648b555cff2852b416e91df22d2546b2fe3a200d/doc/COMPILING/COMPILING-VS-VCPKG.md
But it does not tell how to compile and run the tests.
Do I open the “Cataclysm-Tests.vcxproj”? Trying to build that just gets errors.
First it complains about missing Windows SDK version 8.1. That can be found on google (should the project be updated to SDK version 10?).
After that it complains
fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'SDL.h': No such file or directory.
