Update for Windows 10

  • File name changed from Win7GamesForWin8-Setup.exe to Win7GamesForWin10-Setup.exe
  • Compiled with NSIS 3.0b2 for better Windows 10 compatibility
  • "Add to Media Center extras library" section disabled when the installer is running on Windows 10
  • GameExplorer.lnk start menu shortcut is no longer created when "Create shortcuts in Games Explorer" is unchecked
  • Setup now refreshes the shell to update start menu shortcuts and file associations properly. Something I had forgotten.
