exec('ps...') fails on Windows -- switch to equivalent Windows command

Is WMIC available by default, or does it need to be installed separately?

Though it would certainly be nice to not have to use exec() for anything in the first place...

WMIC is installed by default. Agreed that it'd be nice not to use exec().

It just occurred to me that my Windows worker code depends on an ugly hack: Because Windows does not provide process forking, Windows workers won't run without changing Worker.php:190 to "if (true)" to run as the child. It's orthogonal to this patch, but Windows workers won't run without it. I'll try to make that less hackish and submit a patch.

Closing this because it's essentially the same as #93. I took a few iterations to get there but the result is the same.
