Upgrade Windows Agent

I am trying to upgrade an existing Windows Agent that is working with Server 5.7 and moving to Server 5.15.5. The agent will try to start and then error with the horrible error below. I have tried to download the current 6.1 agent version but the .bat file is erroring on a missing home directory that doesnt currently exist. Not sure where to go from here, fix the old agent or try setting up new. The old agent is using the ANT setup script.

Current Agent error:
