- Added Fedora Inverse cursor scheme

XPize Reloader:

- Keeps track of the default XPize visual style, cursor scheme and wallpaper settings (optional)

I386 Patching:

- Renamed to "Create a XPized Windows ISO" (Patches a given Windows installation source and creates an ISO)

Switches:

- Internal improvements (easier to manage)

- /dest and /mode=normal switches no longer available

- /nocursors switch to skip cursor scheme install

- New Extra Options page (Reloader on Startup, MS Dlg pointer to Tahoma and backup desktop settings)

- New method for Restore Point creation

- Checks if user is on 64-bit version of Windows

- Improved cleaning after install

Uninstaller:

- Restores the exact visual style used before installing XPize (if selected so in the installer)

- Restores the exact wallpaper used before installing XPize (if selected so in the installer)

- Restores the exact cursor scheme used before installing XPize (if selected so in the installer)

- Uninstallation optimized (only uninstalls what needed although everything selected for removal)

- Improved cleaning after uninstall

******

Important Notes:

- The XPize website with be updated with the new info when this version gets final

- nLite compatibility is broken. nuhi and me will fix it. (Fixed. Next nLite version will be compatible with XPize 4.2 and above)

- "/dest" and "/mode=normal" switches no longer available

Romey:

Run XPize uninstaller and select to Restore MS Dlg pointer to MS Sans Serif. If that does not fix the problem. Then it has to be another thing, or not even XPize's fault.
