Emacs writes the PostScript data to a temporary file, then invokes
Ghostscript on that temporary file.  What does the following show in

   M-: temporary-file-directory RET

It should show an existing directory on your local disk.  If it does,
then open that directory in the Window Explorer and try "ps-print"
again.  You should see a file created there whose name begins with
"EP".  If you invoke Process Explorer or something similar, you should
see there gswin32c.exe being invoked with this file as an argument.
Can you see if all this works as expected?
