what do you mean by window textures?
Do you want to texture the environment behind it?
or the window itself to put one on the wall?
Because windows(glass) are usually flat and monochromatic...

I mean the window itself to put one on the wall. It doesnt particularly matter if there is or isnt anything reflected in the window.

If it's supposed to be high quality you should model it.
Take a look in cgtextures.com

From what I gather, he wants to just map a picture to a plane or something so it looks like there's a view outside the window.
