In my (too) long experience with Windows starting with Windows 3.0 as a developer and Windows 2.0 as a casual user, this is what happens. Periodically there are efforts to improve the situation. Sometimes things even get peaceful for a while. But then something breaks and it is very difficult to debug.

An alternative (and shameless plug) would be to use the Lua module `pe-parser` [1] (this is a Lua list after all).
