New This Version( 4.0)

FULL Support for Compact 2013 MinShell menu
When the Compact 2013 MinShell (Codeplex) is specified as the Compact 2013 OS shell, at start up MinShell registry keys are iterated through. These key-values specify applications to make available for selection to run with the MinShell menu. This is a primitive form of a Windows Start Menu. With this version of CEComponentWiz there is an option to generate and include the required registry settings for applications (.exe) included in the generated component Subproject. Components so optioned then are available to be run via the MinShell menu. In V3.1 this was on the Short Cuts menu. In this version it is a separate Checkbox option...You can still do Shortcuts.

Option to not copy files to Resources folder..
If so chosen then when the Subproject is built is sources them from the original location. Useful for including applications built outside of the OS Solution; eg SDK apps.
