Subject: UNSHADOW from Windows

Is it possible to copy the /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow files from solaris, and save them as files in windows and run unshadow. Or does unshadow only work in unix/linux with root user? 


I've got the files but want to run john from windows, and I have saved the /etc/shadow as etcshadow and /etc/passwd as etcpasswd in windows but when supplying the command unshadow etcpasswd etcshadow > mypasswd I am informed 

fopen: etcshadow No such file or directory 


I suspect maybe unshadow does not work in windows but hopefully someone can provide a solution?
