Because the syntax of the command invoked by find-name-dired, viz.

> |   find . \( -name "*.mak" \) -exec ls -ld {} \;

assumes a Posix shell which needs some special characters escaped
with a backslash and removes those backslashes before passing the
command-line arguments to `find'.

In other words, you should try to modify the command by removing all
the backslashes.  That should work on Windows.

Another alternative is to find a ported Bash and point shell-file-name
to its executable file.
