I have it working just fine now using PuTTY’s key authentication agent. This solution will work fine for me but it would be nice to have the ability to use the password setup also.

Why does this need to happen for Windows? SSH on Linux also has this same prompt and cvs works fine with it.

I'm not sure what the issue with Windows is. On UNIX, SSH finds and grabs the user's tty, bypassing any intermediate parent processes entirely and avoiding the issue.

Windows has no equivalent of TTYs as far as I know. If the writers of PuTTY aren't trying to keep their command lines and GUIs seperate, a pop-up password request box might work, but you'll have to deal with PuTTY's developers on that one.
