The window control unit is located in the aux. relay panel above the
drivers feet.  You can probably access it from the little access door in
the lower dash panel.  Bentley has troubleshooting procedure.  There is
also a cicuit breaker there somewhere which may have gone bad if all 4
won't move.

Good luck
