As predicted:

Unfortunately, we haven't supported Windows since MPICH version 1.4.1p1. You can find out more at the FAQ page: http://wiki.mpich.org/mpich/index.php/Frequently_Asked_Questions#Q:_Why_can.27t_I_build_MPICH_on_Windows_anymore.3F

You can try the information there or you can try your question on some other places (Stack Overflow for example). I don’t know anything about Windows, but a quick glance at your question suggests that you don’t have passwordless SSH set up correctly. You might try taking a look at that.
