there has to be a separate material for that window, otherwise, just the .mtbl file settings affect the outcome - know there were a good post some time ago whyte a fence somewhere ...

Detach the window from the mesh and make it its own mesh, though still grouped with the other meshes for the model. Then in the MTL file you can set its transparency and don't have to worry about layers and such.

"name" : "glass",
"color" : ".725,.725,.725,1.0",

top line of the mtl segments. The bolded is the transparency setting. 1.0 =opaque, 0.1=barely there.
