Maybe this is not really a problem for the AVR plugin. And also, I'm not familiar with Windows.
Can you enable in Arduino IDE the verbose of avrdude? I wonder what the avrdude command line is that it makes it to work. By looking at that command line you should be able to make the AVR plugin use the same avrdude command line. Can you post the avrdude command line from Arduino IDE?
