I was intending to have some programming logic to download the data
from AppDB and apply this to winecfg/the registry. That way the user
does not have to look it up, it becomes something that is updated as
part of the install process.

For the case where there isn't any AppDB data, the default version of
Windows is reported as is done at the moment.
