Thanks for your message. However it should have been sent to one of the 
gnucash mailing lists instead of me personally. I have only found it now. You 
can find more info on the mailing lists in the footer of this message.

bootstrap_win_dev.vbs is the boostrap script to go with gnucash 2.6 and older. 
These versions have recently reached end of life.

The relocation of the sources which you have discovered on the other hand has 
happened on the branch leading up to gnucash 3.0 and more recent. To build 
those on Windows you can start from setup-mingw64.ps1. More information can 
also be found on the wiki page:
