itimpi is correct - the automation interface for Windows is entirely different than OS X. If you look at the Apple driver source code, you'll see that the low-level I/O functions with iTunes are partitioned into 'if OSX' and 'if Windows', each with their own peculiarities and capabilities.
It makes sense that Apple is more concerned about rogue apps in the OS X space than Windows.
