I don't know if curly quotes are part of any Emacs input method but if not, and depending on the layout of your keyboard you could have something like this in your .emacs:

(setq w32-pass-lwindow-to-system nil
      w32-pass-rwindow-to-system nil
      w32-pass-apps-to-system    nil
      w32-lwindow-modifier       'super   ;; Left Windows
      w32-rwindow-modifier       'super   ;; Right Windows
w32-apps-modifier 'hyper) ;; App-Menu (key to right of Right Windows)

and then

(global-set-key [(super \,)] (lambda () (interactive) (insert  ?« )))
(global-set-key [(super \.)] (lambda () (interactive) (insert  ?» )))
(global-set-key [(super \')] (lambda () (interactive) (insert  ?“ )))
(global-set-key [(super  \")] (lambda () (interactive) (insert  ?” )))

I’m not able to use ”alt codes” to insert special characters when using Emacs 
25.1.1 on Windows 10 Pro

E.g. if I press Alt+0147 in order to insert an opening double quote (”), Emacs 
just displays C-u 147- in the
mode line. This keyboard shortcut works fine in other applications such as 

Any ideas how to solve this?
I don't think this has ever worked in Emacs.  You can use the other
methods for inserting characters by their codepoints, as pointed out
by Rob.
