Don't worry. As long as I don't need to test on MS Windows, everything
is fine. Answering questions about Tramp on MS Windows doesn't hurt :-)

Well, you don't need to create a new method. You could overwrite
attributes of the existing methods:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(add-to-list 'tramp-connection-properties
             (list (regexp-quote "/ssh:address@hidden:")
                   "login-program" "/tools/msys64/usr/bin/sh.exe"))

(add-to-list 'tramp-connection-properties
             (list (regexp-quote "/ssh:address@hidden:")
                   '(("-l" "%u") ("-p" "%p") ("%c") ("-e" "none") ("%h"))))

--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

"/ssh:address@hidden:" should be the remote identification
of your MS Windows machine. Read the Tramp manual for details

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(info "(tramp) Predefined connection information")
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Could you set tramp-verbose to 10 prior your tests, and send the
resulting debug buffer? Maybe we'll see what's going "wrong there".
