We're not currently using this, so I've unhooked it from the build completely.

That was fixed shortly after 1.4.0 already:

And it shouldn't be exported either in the general case, but it's
needed for this test to try out if zip_random is used from the
replacement DLL, or if the original one is used.

Do you have a suggestion on how to solve this? Or should we just skip
this and the non-random AES encrytion tests on Windows?
