First a few questions to try to eliminate some possibilities before you have to get the multimeter out.

Is it all the four windows.
Does everything else electrical work, if not what is non functional too.

Has the fuse blown for the 2nd ignition live? (There are 3 in total, 1 & 2 come on together on the 1st notch of the key, 3 comes on with the 2nd notch).

Do the brake lights, sunroof, dash illumination & map reading lights work? If not, then that'll be your issue. Otherwise all 4 windows wouldn't fail together as they're fed from different fuses and different relays, the only common link is the relay feed; which is L2 on the ignition.

Hope that helps.
