It's hard to imagine that such a system call changes.

I use windows 8 which seems to work ok.

Are you sure that you use no local patches? A while ago all file io and 
system code in mkiv was wrapped in a way that permits sandboxing (that 
was already the case but now it's a bit more flexible and efficient).


ps. You had issues on your machine before with executing if I remember 
right. Maybe something fundamental>
