MSDN/PlatformSDK doesn't say that "you only need to make sure comctl32.dll is loaded, you don't need to call InitCommonControls()
It kind of does say that although I grant you not directly. It says that you should call InitCommonControls to ensure that the dll is loaded. In a sense it implies that loading the dll is the end goal, so once that goal is achieved then your job is done.

The InitCommonControls function ensures that the common control dynamic-link library (DLL) is loaded.
That is all is says, it gives no other reason for the function to exist.

Not the best wording if that's from some old PlatformSDK version... here's what the most recent version says:

This function registers and initializes the common control window classes. This function is obsolete. New applications should use InitCommonControlsEx (function).


I guess that initialization is in reality done on process or thread attach to the DLL - but it could just as well have been done by the InitCommonControls call.

I'm nazi about this, yes, but I fucking hate when badly coded software breaks on a newer system, and the amount of backwards-compatibility shit Microsoft has to keep lugging around because of it.
