Just a thought, but I don't think you need to go to all that bother. 
The example code on the embarcadero site doesn't seem to require 
Lazarus.  It just uses a Windows MessageBox for the dialog in the 
example.  I could be wrong but I think a 64 bit FPC compiler is all you 

Would you be interested in maybe helping me just a little to make a 
64-bit FPC minimal distro that would compile that example code?  I've 
been using more Linux and less Windows the past few years so right now I 
don't have a 64 bit Windows to test with.
