I assume that's because in server.el, make-network-process is called with
these args:
        :family 'local :service server-socket-name

This only works if AF_LOCAL (aka. AF_UNIX) is supported by the O/S --
so I would assume it isn't supported on Windoze...

Probably, the solution is to use a local network connection if
:family 'local isn't supported.  This can be tested in lisp with

        (featurep 'make-network-process '(:family  local))

Maybe Stefan can help you here.
