Neither was particularly impressed by this. Windows at least showed a warning message, but the Pi appeared to just sulk in the corner and not boot.
Anyway, I've changed to Windows' Internet Connection Sharing and that works much better - I can now SSH into the Pi (though I did have to change the Pi's DNS server - it seems that Windows isn't running a resolver). And trawling through the logs shows that it does at least detect the WiFi adapter:
