Not really, everything related to app development is just gone, dead, with Qt and wxWidgets being the remaining survivors.

VCL is only available to corporate shops and those that aren't into FOSS religion.

MFC is in maintenance mode, and so far Windows developers are more keen moving into one of .NET UI stacks while keeping some C++ code as COM/DLLs or even C++/CLI, than jumping into UWP/WinUI. It remains to be seen if WinUI 3.0 will change the migration trend.

I doubt HFT firms are writing apps in C++.
