I think this depends on the way you launch Emacs.  I did:

1)  Open a DOS-box with `Windows-key cmd RET'
2)  Make sure Emacs, Sumatrapdf and TL in the PATH
3)  Enter `runemacs RET'
4)  `C-x C-f ÜmläutÖ-täst.tex RET' and yanked your test file
5)  `C-c C-t C-s' to enable `TeX-source-correlate-mode'
6)  `C-c C-c' to compile and `C-c C-v' to view

and Synctex works for me without a problem (both ways).  What is your workflow?

I didn't test it with pdf-tools as I don't have it installed.

Best, Arash
