Solar, is this is still true?

#error CPU_FALLBACK is incompatible with the current DOS and Windows code
From:
https://github.com/magnumripper/JohnTheRipper/blob/master/src/john.c#L498

I tried it and it works on Windows 10 64 bits. Fresh CygWin, but no tricks;
only JtR source with that `#if` commented.

I'm doing some experimentation:

I don't recall why I included this #error for Windows builds. Probably
it's not true.

DOS builds currently rely on the asm wrapper, which IIRC has the
john.bin filename hardcoded in it, so for them this is technically true.
