Add support for Windows Xp


The use of glass effect and Windows Vista-only control for the source selection has made Flickr Downloadr unable to support Windows XP. Add code to check the Windows version and fall back to simpler UI.

This is not a big deal. I've tried your project yesterday, I have WinXP Prof SP3. I had to do some thing to get the program to work on WinXP:
  1. ) FormFlickr_Shown crashed because IsWindows7 worked in the opposite way.
    Now mine is like:
    return (Environment.OSVersion.Version.Major > 6 && Environment.OSVersion.Version.Build > 7600);
    notice the opposite brackets.
  2. ) I had add
    if (!Program.IsWindows7())
    to EnableThumbnailToolbarButtons and DisableThumbnailToolbarButtons.

Thanks for reporting the problem with IsWindows7 check, you're code is wrong as well. It's now fixed to be: Environment.OSVersion.Version.Major >= 6 && Environment.OSVersion.Version.Build >= 7600.
