SHIP v1.1.0 is available. In a separate project titled Ink2Text I am releasing a new recognizer that does not require a copy of Windows on any machine, either real or virtual. I recommend moving to that solution - benefits include easier set up and no extra memory or CPU cycles stolen to support a Windows session.
Using the new Ink2Text recognizer requires switching to this version of the SHIP, but from a user perspective there will be little or no change noticed once you've installed it.
Let me know what you think.
