Unable to install module "hw_scanner" because an external dependency is not met: No module named evdev

I have tried installing on Odoo v 8 on Windows 7 and Windows 10. When I do a pip  install evdev it throws error.

"The 'linux/input.h' and 'linux/input-event-codes.h' include files

are missing. You will have to install the kernel header files in

order to continue:"

I cannot find a means to install Kernel headers as apt-get does not work on windows cmd.

Please help!!
