For windows instead of /usr/localapache/bin/htpasswd you should use htpasswd.exe in apache bin directory.
also replace unix pathnames with standard windows pathnames (including drive name). for example:
AuthUserFile /usr/local/apache/passwd/passwords
should be replaced by:
AuthUserFile c:/apache/passwords
