I guess you need something like CygWin to get curses running on Windows
(not sure, please correct me if I am wrong).

No-one has ported the curses module to windows yet, according to Alex
Martelli (ref. Python In a Nutshell, p. 208). The msvcrt, WConio, and
Console modules substitute some of its functionality. HTH,
