Include Windows compatibility manifest into executables, to make GetVersionEx working

    Details

      Description

      GetVersionEx() on Windows lies about actual version by default, starting with Windows 8.1, i.e
      it always returns 6.2 indicating Windows 8/2012, even on 8.1 or 10.

      In order to get this function to tell truth, additional compatibility manifest is required during
      the build. This is described in
      https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/dn481241(v=vs.85).aspx

      Currently, this just affects feedback plugin (the stats show quite a large number of Windows 8 installations, and no Windows 10 for example)
