You should not be trying to do that.

That's deeply system-specific Windows code.  It has nothing to with 
POSIX, Cygwin or anything like that.

For that you need a native Windows toolchain, and quite possibly some 
extra SDK packages from Microsoft to enable building them.  MinGW64 
(wether stand-alone, or the MSYS(2) hosted one, or the one hosted in 
Cygwin) might be able to do it.
