I've tried to convert a MIDI file into LilyPond (version 2-19.83-1) using
the command prompt, but it gives me an error:

  File "C:\Program Files (x86)\LilyPond\usr\bin\midi2ly.py", line 545
    sys.stderr.write ("SKIP: %s\n" % `e`)
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

What's the problem with the code?

It's a compatibility issue between Python 2 and 3. The backtick operator was removed [1] in Python 3, in favor of the repr() procedure.

It is my understanding the scripts shipping with LilyPond are not expected to be interpretable by Python 3 yet.
