No, it didn't work. But linking against mysqlcppconn.lib *DID* work when I tried it just now. I thought (naively, I guess) that the static library would contain the exact same content as the DLL for which mysqlcppconn is the import library. I also though that the ~8 versions of the libraries would work with the 8.0 connector, as the online documentation says.

I yearn for the 1960's, when one could code to the api's described in the IBM manuals for OS/360 and confidently expect that one's program would work the first time and when one could confidently expect programs to keep working from one release of the OS to the next. [Of course, on the downside, what would today be considered a reasonably sized program needed multiple trays of punched cards and many hours waiting for batch runs to debug. But I digress.]
