Are you really sure?
.. maybe some (browser) caching issue? or mixup?

old, debug

(above screenshots are from the x64 builds, but also checked the x86 ones)

Also the file size should be significantly different (release build is smaller).

In this case it's quite easy; just install Visual Studio (including C++ / Platform tools), Meson, Git and run the commands I've written in my previous posts in an appropriate VS cmd environment. That should be it.
Thanks St_W - was an issue with Opera. Downloaded with MS Edge and bingo - new version downloaded.

I need to install Visual Studio (~7GB) just to compile a DLL!?!?!?

Anyhow, seems to run- properly with my test scripts. Thanks for compiling it. :D

Maybe build tools + platform tools suffice. But installing the full suite is easier for sure. And you probably won't save too much cause the platform tools alone are quite big.
