Don't forget loader snaps, which we can log using a standard debugger such as WinDbg or by attaching a Python script as a debugger (e.g. debug a child process via the DEBUG_PROCESS creation flag). For the latter, we need a debug-event loop (i.e. WaitForDebugEventEx via ctypes) that logs debug-string events. This will show the paths that the loader checks and the load attempts that fail with STATUS_DLL_NOT_FOUND (0xC0000135). We have to first enable loader snaps for the executable by setting a flag value of 2 in the "GlobalFlag" DWORD in the key "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\<executable name>". Or use gflags.exe to set this value.
