As Kevin Rodgers points out, you should make sure that octave is
installed. Then you need to get emacs to find it.

If you aren't comfortable fiddling around with your path, the other
option is to customize inferior-octave-program (i.e. M-x
customize-variable inferior-octave-program) and change it to point at
the octave.exe that you've installed.

I haven't got a windows system to test this on, but I suspect that this
would work.
