I don't know about the above error, but the way you've used
copy-device-to-file is clearly wrong:

It's actually not clear to me what you're trying to achieve here.
Download the file to the local host?  If so use guestfs_download:

  guestfs_download (g, "/file-to-extract.exe", "local-file.exe");

BTW you should check for errors from C API calls.
