window here most likely refers to time frame or tolerance

1) window = the time period that is considered best for starting or finishing something =
the time frame is very short.
(2)the window is narrow =  the tolderance for error is small

Thanks a lot.  Window is not a WINDOW in this sentence. Maybe edchan was right.  At first, i think it means "时间已经不多了".
