That's because the VERSION define in the debug build read

 /D VERSION="1.95.2"

whereas MSVC had wanted it as

 /D VERSION=\"1.95.2\"

I still fail to see the rationale for requiring the backslashes there,
or why I have to change every setting twice on Windows (which I forgot
in this case); in any case, I moved the VERSION setting into expat.h,
so this problem should be gone now.
