I also had to rework my system so that the installation paths did not contain spaces in the folder names.  Then I began installing extensions from the TYPO3 repository.  I have another server running Linux and TYPO3 3.60 but unfortunately, have been instructed by administrators at our headquarter office that we must migrate that web site to a windows-based system.  I am simply trying to install the same extensions on the windows server but seem to be having one problem after another.

Have you RTFM? It seems like the extension is not configured for 
Windows, as I understand it from the doc, you must use 7zip instead of 
tar. According to your logs, neither the SQL dump nor the tarball are 
created, so you have to change path info probably.
