It is my intention to provide a set of book example projects that use the Windows simulator because it is a more convenient platform, but so far I have not been able to find the time to do this.
I think creating projects that use the Windows simulator should be straight forward, although the performance obtained will not be real time the sequence in which things are executed should be accurate. The only small potential issue I would see is the tick rate, because Windows is only capable of giving a very slow (in comparison to an embedded system anyway) clock, some timings (block times, etc.) might need changing.
