That might be right. That I guess is something needed to be done with the NSIS installer I am currently using. I will consider this as a low priority task for the time being. But if someone with some windows expertise who can tell me how to do this in NSIS, please do so.

Anyone want to sign up for this for 5.0? (Or has it already been done?)
