That message (Output file removed) together with test.log seem to  
indicate the problem is with xdvipdfmx, not XeTeX itself. XeTeX  
produces a file test.xdv in XDVI format, and transparently invokes  
xdvipdfmx to convert it to PDF format (then erase the XDV file). The  
log file test.log "documents" only the compilation by XeTeX, not that  
by xdvipdfmx.

You could try to run in sequence:

xelatex -no-pdf test.tex
xdvipdfmx -vv test.xdv

I'm afraid I can't be of more help, as I'm on the Mac, not Windows.
