Newbie can't compile configuration.h for SKR Mini E3

Hi All,

Newbie to coding / microprocessors. I’m more of a mechanic than a coder and I’m floundering a bit here.

Have a stock Ender 3 with the 4.2.2 board. Works fine, but no support for dual Z or BLtouch, and it’s noisy! Picked up a BigTreeTech SKR Mini E3 version 2.0 ('cause the prices have plummeted since they released the version 3.0) and also the TFT35 E3 version 3.0 display.

I realized going into it that I was going to have to flash firmware into the control card, and thought I had read up sufficiently to pull it off, but it’s been one roadblock after another.

Biggest issue at the moment is trying to build a preconfigured file from BTT for this card and an Ender 3. When I load it into Visual Studio, right from the start I’m looking at 70+ errors that I have no idea what to do with (mostly error #59… see screenshot:

I’ve no idea if I can just comment these errors out since they don’t apply to this card, and I’ve even less idea why a file made specifically for this card and an Ender 3 would have so many errors in it (according to them it’s verified/tested and good.)

Don’t know if the answer is to chuck the preconfigured file and just use the latest Marlin version ( ?) and use my original configuration.h and the one from BTT as reference?

Thought I had this, but apparently I’m in the deep end of the pool.

Any suggestions or direction would be greatly appreciated!
