#10368: WIN32: WinSparkle doesn't terminate ScummVM.exe before launching the
installer

 I updated from 1.9.0.2 to 2.0.0 using the WinSparkle updater.

 I noticed that after downloading the updated installer and clicking the
 final "Install Update" button, WinSparkle launches the new installer
 without terminating the ScummVM process before. This will cause the Inno
 installer dropping an error message and a request to close the
 application. While this can be done in the Inno installer itself, this
 might be just a bit confusing to the end user and not a real problem.

 Maybe the WinSparkle implementation can be tweaked to close ScummVM.exe
 before launching the Inno installer instead of relying on the Inno feature
 that detects files that are in use.
