The cable support is to keep the projecting part of the window from sagging. It doesn't support the entire weight of the window, so yes, you do need to have a structurally sound framed opening all the way around.
Pella's web site has a downloadable PDF file with installation instructions. http://pro.pella.com/pdf/PL_BowBay.pdf
A bay window's framing can a little different than a typical window rough opening so make sure that you measure from the correct point and install the correct blocking on the sides. Here's a link to Andersen's section details (didn't have Pella's information handy): http://tinyurl.com/ffkoe
