It might be easy enough to guess why it fails.  I see this in
file-notify-tests.el:

  ;; There is no default value on w32 systems, which could work out of the box.
  (defconst file-notify-test-remote-temporary-file-directory
    (if (eq system-type 'windows-nt) null-device "/ssh::/tmp")
    "Temporary directory for Tramp tests.")

How is this supposed to work?  null-device is not a directory.  I'm
guessing that "Error 5" is "access denied" emitted by Windows because
some file primitive tries to treat null-device as if it were a
directory.

If you could explain what you intended to achieve by that, perhaps I
could suggest a solution.  (Does "/ssh::/tmp" assume there's an sshd
running on the machine that runs the tests?)
