That something is broken inside Emacs, but Emacs doesn't tell what.

Did you build Emacs yourself?  If so, could you please add a call to
GetLastError to sys_pipe (defined on w32.c), after the _pipe call, and
when it fails like that, see which error code it returns?

This is quite old, suggest to update to a newer version, to avoid
wasting energy on an old bug that was already fixed.
