I was able to successfully build and install vtk on Visual Studio 2019 thanks to various resources:

I was able to build the example HighlightPickedActor successfully, and now get a render window with the correct visuals when I run the example under the release configuration.
However when I run it in the debug configuration and try to set a breakpoint in line 84 of HighlightPickedActor.cxx I get an error thrown by line 82:
Exception thrown at 0x00007FFAD2CDAB10 (vtkCommonColor-9.0.dll) in HighlightPickedActor.exe: 0xC0000005: Access violation reading location 0x000000897B900000. occurred
Why does the example work under the Release configuration but not under the Debug configuration? Must I build the example for each configuration before I am able to Debug it? What does the ALL_BUILD project do?
