Downloaded Qt, Visual Studio C++, cloned (or whatever it is called in svn) the BRL-CAD source code.

Fixed the errors that came up and built BRL-CAD from source on Windows, VS2019. Several bugs still remain. A debug assertion failure happens in pix-bw.exe. But I guess this won't affect my project in any way. The builds still take a long time. I guess this is because everything is compiled everytime.

I looked at the possibility of using NMake to build BRL-CAD for Windows because it would not take long as building with VS (CMake was lot faster when I was doing in Ubuntu last year). Also I need to configure CLion instead of VS.
CMake generates the NMake project successfully. But NMake does not work well. It gives an error when building TCL and TK projects. I was changing various stuff and tried to see if it succeeds.

Changing CMakeLists files of tcl and tk modules and a change to corecrt_io.h in windows 10 SDK made the errors with NMake disappear. Archer does not work. Debugging Archer displays that it crashes saying tkhtml.dll not found. Also I was trying to find a bug to solve as the patch Sean asked for. Looked at https://sourceforge.net/p/brlcad/bugs/385/. Followed some Qt videos.
