How to compile Quake 2 source with

  c++, visual-c++, windows

I’m trying to compile the official full Quake2 source code using MSVC 2019. When i open the quake2.dsw in my MSVC 2019 it tries to migrate the workspace to work with the current version of the IDE but it fails. For each the project in the solution I’m getting

Unable to convert project. Please make sure this is a valid Visual C++
6.0 project

in the Migration Report.

How to get the MSVC 2019 to compile the code?

I’m using MSVC 2019 on Win 10.
