C++ Question

C++ win32-type project is unavailable

I use Visual Studio 2017 Community Edition for C++, but I have a problem.
I need to create a win32 project (Actually I want to create a static library (.lib)) but for some reason I don't have this type of projects available!
All what I have in the Section of Visual C++ is:


  • Windows Desktop


    • Windows Console Application

    • Windows Desktop Application

    • Windows Desktop Wizard


  • Windows Universal

  • General


    • Empty Project

    • Makefile Project

    • Shared Items Project


  • ALT


    • ALT Project


  • Test


    • Native Unit Test Project


  • Qt



What should I do to get Win32 Project Template?
or is there another way to create such a project (.lib NOT .exe)?

Desktop Wizard should allow to select "Static library" or first on second page.
