Default Update to version 1.7

I thought it was time for some maintenance work on the installer, mostly to streamline recent support for the latest Superbundle, Gog & Steam editions through consolidation of all the different recent patches I just had to put up lately to uhm... catch up with such editions
that would be a consolidation into a single encompassing version so users don't even bother to recall what version they have got
while I was at it I also added support for v1.03 of the nGlide glide wrapper software
and here comes... no less than v1.7 in person

Updated roster of latest improvements:

o Fix for compatibility with all the latest editions and repackaging redistributions of the Tomb Raider 1 cdrom available on the market, such as Superbundle, Gog and Steam packages: all these would go otherwise unrecognized thus causing prior installer versions to crash [v. 1.7]

o Inclusion of optional nGlide wrapper v1.03 setup [v. 1.7]

o Inclusion of complete set of PlayStation cdrom audio tracks and customized tomb.exe by KMO [v. 1.6]

o Cdaudio playing routine revamping, via recompilation of dosbox.exe. Bugfix for depth artifacts with Intel graphics cards via updated glide2x.dll build by gulikoza [v. 1.5]

o Maintenance release, customized setup bitmaps [v. 1.4.2]

o Full support for 64bit versions of Windows Vista and Windows 7 [v. 1.4]

o Self-dectection of processor architecture (32 vs. 64 bit) [v. 1.3]

o Fix: possible freeze issues with some TR1 cdrom layouts (32 and 64 bit) [v. 1.2]

o Fix: performance hits and lockups at onset of gameplay: new game vs. load game stage (32 and 64 bit) [v. 1.2
Usage of the application, I hope, is as always pretty straightforward.
Short readme txt/doc included.

Caveat utens (player beware ): graphics glitches may still happen, especially lockups or crashes when it comes to rendering the FMVs.

To this effect I'll add here a word or two asap to briefly summarize what, if anything, can imho be tried to work these out, obviously within the scope of the tool in question.

We often forgive those who bore us--we cannot forgive those who find us boring.
