Checked builds of Windows are used internally and given to external system builders at times.
They are builds that for example that all elements in a structure follow the definition of that
Structure. The bug this fixed was for a field that we did not fill in at all (Because we do
Not use it on the Linux side), and the checked build of windows gives errors on it internally
to the Windows logs.
This fixes that error.
