The vty UI is not supported on Windows, unfortunately. You'll need to
install Gtk2Hs and the Pango UI. I'm not sure if there's anything you
need to do to install Gtk2Hs (on unix machines, it's just cabal
install-able), but after that you should be able to run this:

$ cabal install yi -f-vty -fpango

(That disables the vty UI, enables the pango UI.)
