Don't do this! In case this is used to create permanent keys or even
used to sign using DLP type keys (DSA); I suggest that you send out a
note that those keys should be revoked.

The entropy gathering stuff is black magic and we need to see whether
the collected data on W64 is up to our expectations. I have seen
reports that the collected entropy is very bad.
As a quick fix you may write your own rndw64 solely based on Windows
Crypto RNG functions; See init_system_rng et al. If you want to do
more, checkout how it has been done in cryptlib.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
