[ntp:questions] unable to get new 4.2.8p4 to compile under vs2008 with nonsensical errors in mkver.bat and missing _CONSOLE ?

Hi all,

Mkver.bat doesn't appear malformed, but vs2008 claims syntax errors.
I think the kicker is the _CONSOLE error.  _CONSOLE looks like one of the compiler flag arguments, yet it is being interpreted as some file to be built.

I've gotten 4.2.8p1 to build several months ago on this setup, and am rebuilding with the newest patch due to the various security fixes.
