Hi Matthias,

looks good!

Do we really need LDR_PRELOAD? The documentation you've linked
mentions that it is only used for 32-bit process which we don't
support anyway.

I think it may be better to leave it out completely, otherwise people
may get confused if they see that LDR_PRELOAD was defined.

Thank you and best regards,
