On Windows, the cat command is not available. You should open the file in NotePad instead, at the location shown in the 'Getting Started' tutorial.

After starting up the node as you did, you need to open a second command-line window to interact with it.

In general, please look out for the Windows hints in the blue boxes on the 'Getting Started' page.
