Since this release it is possible to generate winperf data without spawning a new process.

To enable this feature you should edit check_mk.user.yml file and set in the section winperf the key fork in no

This setting is primary intended for problem solving and should be used carefully, because Windows OS may leak handles when winperf API is used.
