If by "terminal emulation" you mean term.el, then it doesn't work on
MS-Windows because it requires two Posix features that AFAIK aren't
available on Windows, certainly not with the Windows default shell:

  . terminfo
  . stty settings

In addition, I'm not sure that Windows shells will work with the
process-connection-type being nil (i.e. via pipes instead of PTYs),
which is another feature that is missing on MS-Windows.
