short answer yes.

(slightly) longer answer:

This section alludes to it - really there needs a section saying "how
to get non automatic checkpointing working on windows"

If you search these archives for "windows checkpointing" or "vanilla
universe checkpointing" you will get some posts passim
"Checkpointing in vanilla" has a few bit by myself
Also an older thread titled "file transfer problems with vanilla job"
will get you some more specifics

Apologies for not giving you a more fulsome answer I am in a bit of a
hurry at the mo.
