I think this is the same as bug #865; merged.

What do the following three expression evaluate to, in the Emacs session
that signals this error?

  (user-uid)

  (file-attributes "c:/.emacs.d/server/" 'integer)

  (file-attributes "c:/.emacs.d/server/" 'string)

Finally, does it help to set w32-get-true-file-attributes to nil?
