I have downloaded the https://github.com/pharo-project/pharo-vm/blob/master/opensmalltalk-vm/build.win32x86/pharo.cog.spur.lowcode/Pharo.exe.manifest and put it in the folder that contains the PharoLauncher Pharo.exe and then the pointers are correct again (they have their masking done correctly.
So, there is a packaging issue somewhere for Pharo Windows VMs as downloaded by the Laucher.
