Here is the problem.  For some reason the compiler appears to building
in the asm_fast.gc grade which isn't supported when using MSVC.

Could you check in the Mmakefile in the directory that you are trying to
build hello_world in to determine whether the GRADE variable has been
set to asm_fast.gc.  If so then change it to hlc.gc or delete the line.

If not, then this indicates a bug in the installation.
