The standard universe does not exist at all on Windows, all jobs
must be either 'vanilla' or 'java'. (The scheduler, local, and parallel
universes all work on Windows as well, but they're really just 
variations on vanilla universe)

The likely route to checkpointing on Windows will be running the job
in a virtual machine, and checkpointing the virtual machine state.
