Can you provide a changelog for this?

The last "official" version is BETA (0.0.6.5).

According to Sean Mauch, "This tool still functions, however development has ceased, this last version (0.0.6.5) is offered here for posterity."

Thank you for your insights!

According to this https://forums.mydigitallife.net/thread ... st-1516276

The last official package won't work on Windows 10 - i.e it will blow up when applying a theme - for mainly two reasons:

- It internally uses WMI to retrieve the installed games, a feature that used to be provided by the games explorer on Windows 7 but that no longer exists on 10 (which sucks, because it was a very cool thing).
- It does platform detection to handle differences that exist between WMC for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. Sadly, it doesn't recognize Windows 10 and crashes.

Luckily, it's a .NET application so it was very easy to patch it to make it work on Windows 10 (and trust me, I had to patch a bunch of bugs to make it work!).
