It looks like the reason for this is that a non-default-platform path
is not considered as a path in the `path?' sense -- so you get an
error.  But you can use `split-path' directly (which is what
`file-name-from-path' is doing):

(let-values ([(base file dir?)
              (split-path (bytes->path #"c:\\foo\\bar.txt" 'windows))])

          ((lambda (x) (x x)) (lambda (x) (x x)))          Eli Barzilay:
