Org is part of Emacs, so there is nothing wrong with asking an Org
question here, of course -- but you will generally have faster answers
if you ask on the Org-mode mailing list:

  https://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/emacs-orgmode

What if you use a URL like this:

\emacs-24.2\bin\emacsclientw.exe 
org-protocol:/store-link:/http://www.gnu.org/GNU
                                                           ^^^^^^^

It needs to recognize the link as a link, and www.gnu.org is just a
domain name.

We've all been there, please let us know if the hint above solves your
problem!
