This would appear to be a working directory issue. Would you kindly confirm how you are invoking LilyPond?

It would seem you ran LilyPond from C:\Windows\System32. However, LilyPond is a 32-bit process and would trigger WOW64 file system redirection, mapping the working directory to C:\Windows\SysWOW64. Both system directories are protected and attempts to write to them trigger virtualization, mapping the effective working directory to the VirtualStore location you cited.

Running LilyPond from within the directory where your sources files live is the simplest option, assuming you want the output to sit along side the input. Alternately, you can use the --output command-line option to be explicit about the target file or folder.
