dvipdfm is not supported, because it can't handle important postscript
specials (read: no slurs and beams in LilyPond output).  From the

dvipdfm(1)                                             dvipdfm(1)

       dvipdfm - Produce PDF files directly from DVI files

       The program dvipdfm recognizes several commonly used \special
       commands, which are extensions to the DVI format.

A PostScript engine (ghostview, aka gs) and a viewer (gsview32) are
supplied with the windows installation.  Please rerun setup.exe and
install these packages.

On GNU/Linux, there's a utility called ps2pdf for producing pdf files.
Procducing PDF on windows is not yet supported.
