Windows (and DOS) have a device NUL: (A bit bucket to send unwanted output to). Commonly used as a place to send (discard) messages from individual components and not bother the user. Something/someone has disabled this (device) in your Windows installation

It's a device driver, "null.sys". Instructions on how to install it, if it's missing, are at the link below:
