Most responses that you've seen probably go like this:

Why are you trying to use SSH on windows?  There are other secure 
alternative protocols that are worlds easier to set up.  SSH on Windows 
requires an SSH server be installed, which FWIU is non-trivial. 
However, sserver works very well and is secured too.  There is also 
Kerberos if you're in an AD domain and use gserver (or SSPI?).

This might help:
