I've downloaded and tested last night's build on a Windows 10 laptop,
it is typesetting with the built-in LilyPond ok.
If a File->New score does not typeset first test is to change the prefs
back to just "lilypond" and see if the built-in LilyPond works. If so
use File->New the File->Export->Export as LilyPond and then try to
typeset the resultant file with your 
C:\Program Files (x86)\LilyPond\usr\bin\lilypond-windows.exe

if that works then the finger of suspicion would point to a (possibly
invisible) typo in the prefs field (look in .denemo-2.5.6/denemorc for
the string, copy and paste it into the prompt ...) or some
bug in Denemo handling windows paths (surely would have surfaced
sometime in the past 20 years...).
