Isn’t the Windows framework built with VS? at least in part?

If they had made it an option they could have sold it as a feature, look see we’ll help you debug your module loading! But to turn it on by default with no documentation at all seems a questionable move.

Slimy and underhanded, but that’s Microsoft.

From what I’ve read it sounds like a hook for ETW (Windows equivalent of strace) rather than “phone home” module.
