Sorry, no.

The easiest work-around for this is just to copy these two files:

into a directory for the OSPP:

One other thing you need to know: For Windows, there is a security feature
in FilePlugin that causes several of the OSProcessPlugin primitives to fail.
You can "fix" this by disabling the security function. Edit the file
platforms/win32/vm/sqWin32HandleTable.h and disable the function
IsHandleInTable() by having it just return a 1. I assume that this will
void the warranty on your Windows VM ;) but as far as I know it will cause
no problems for your own personal use.
