If you're using Windows without Cygwin, try 'dir' instead, I suppose.  
It's just to see if the shell-escape is actually working -- it doesn't  
matter what command it is.

You could consider this a bug of the ifplatform package, I suppose. It  
detects the platform by analysing the side-effects of the shell; if  
you're using Cygwin, then the shell behaves like a *NIX shell.
