Windows 8.1 will be released on October 18. Sooner or later, the ThinLinc
client should support this platform.

Sigh. Windows 8.1 has version number 6.3, but in most cases, GetVersionEX()
will report version 6.2 instead. From 


"The main cause of issues with changes to the operating system version was a
result of how developers performed version checking. However due to the poor
checks, the message would often show that the app needed to be run on XP or
later, which of course the newest OS is. More often than not, the newest OS
would run the app without any issues if it were not for these checks."

Their "solution" is also to deprecate GetVersionEx and introduce a new
VersionHelper Win32 API. Well, perhaps. The documentation is only preliminary
and only applies to the 8.1 preview. Sigh.

Not tested on 2012R2 yet; can be done in test cycle.

I had one case were tlclient.log couldn't be renamed to tlclient.log.old and
this was NOT while the logfile was selected in a explorer view. Couldn't
reproduce this and I verified it during my tests and it worked as expected...
