I am glad that you are enjoying building in VS2015...I started doing Hercules builds last year and that has lead me to some interesting things.
Also, thank you for pointing out the typo in the SoftFloat 3a For Hercules Installation script. I will address that with the next release of SoftFloat 3a For Hercules...which will appear shortly.

Well, I could use the Windows binaries that are available, however, my fun is to compile the stuff even if I do not really fully understand what I am doing...
Now, I did not have any luck with VS2008, neither hyperion versions would compile.
With the non-official version, I was getting: RC : fatal error RC1106: invalid option: -ologo
With the official version, I was getting another missing header file message (sorry, I did not take the name down).
So, I uninstalled VS2008 and installed VS2015 instead. Surprisingly enough, the process went well.
I can now compile all Hercules versions that I know of:
hyperion (official) 32 and 64 bits,
hyperion (non-official version) 32 and 64 bits,
and even spinhawk 32 and 64 bits.
I am an happy camper now.
Steven, one thing that you may want to fix is in the WSMSetEnv.cmd file generated when you execute SF3a4Herc.exe, there is a typo in the subdirectory name.
The WSMSetEnv.cmd file says to use:
:: setx SFLIB_DIR ...\amd64\sf3h
:: setx SFLIB_DIR ...\x86\sf3h
The actual subdirectory name where the files are extracted to is s3fh, not sf3h.
Anyway, enough for today, I have some cooking to do...
Best wishes to all of you...
