I had problems with a basic ly file. It looks like the program is trying to open /dev/null and that doesn't work on a windows machine.lilypond --pdf -dbackend=cairo bach_first_lesson_minuet.lyGNU LilyPond 2.23.4 Processing `bach_first_lesson_minuet.ly' Parsing... Interpreting music... Preprocessing graphical objects... Interpreting music... MIDI output to `bach_first_lesson_minuet.mid'... Finding the ideal number of pages... Fitting music on 1 page...

Please change "/dev/null" in line 262 of C:/Program
to the equivalent of /dev/null on windows. What name is used for
the NullDevice in the supported Windows versions? \Devices\Null?
Background: ly:make-paper-outputter assumes that every backend
will need an output file, I thought choosing /dev/null would be
ok as (most of) the output files are created, written and closed
directly by the cairo library.
Also, just a note, my windows system tried everything it could not to let me download and run the LilyPond file. Google Drive, Google Chrome, Windows, and Norton all tried to stop the process.
