Attached a patch to set the component IDs in the 3.4 installer to match the 
ones we're using for 3.5 and later. This should prevent downgrading of the 
launcher in future releases, though it's not strictly the "right" way to do 
this. (Nosied Martin in case he wants to weigh in on this.) (The right way is 
to have a separate MSI with a matching upgrade code, which is not feasible for 

Unfortunately, it won't help when 3.5 is installed per-user (the default), but 
there's nothing we can do there short of backporting the launcher changes, 
probably selectively to avoid the fixes for the VC10->14 change. (Nosied Larry 
to see if he wants to approve this.)
