Ah, that makes it more clear.  We should include this example in the comments.
It does beg the question: what does

   (w32-shell-execute "open" "dir/file")

do, then?  You say it "fails", but does it signal an error?  If so, why?
My world view is very POSIX-centric, so I'm probably missing the obvious.
