Thanks for the report. I haven't heard of anyone using the OpenType  
LM fonts under Windows, so I can't say exactly where the problem is.

Is there a tool under Windows to report whether files are found  
XeTeX? On my Mac, I can type at the command prompt
   $ kpsewhich lmroman10-regular.otf
which gives the output
therefore verifying that the OpenType LM font can actually be found.

There shouldn't be a problem for you to use the [cm-default] package  
option though, unless you really want to use the Latin Modern fonts.
