This cannot be omitted.
Getting the parent pid means we we are in the child process, so we must not
init the parent watchdog thread (see 'return OK;')

Parent watchdog thread is windows specific and allows to have a
watchdog registered in parent process since the way how parent
and child cooperate is different then on unixes since there's no
fork() available.

How exactly does it crash? You say
"either it crashes on win32 or it works" with a smiley,
is not very informative.
