Hmm... strange, indeed.

Do you have a dependency walker program?  (If not, you can download it
from http://www.dependencywalker.com/.)  Can you tell whether the two
executables differ in the versions of msvcrt.dll they are linked
against?  Or any other dynamic libraries, for that matter?

Also, what is the value of errno after the _wopen call that fails?

Finally, what about this part of my questions, did you look into this:

Does the file that Emacs tries to open here, c:\d\ota\memo, exist when
_wopen is called, and if so, is it read-only?  Please check this with
both versions of Emacs, and see if there's any differences in what
happens.

Thanks.
