Description

Filename in the 64-bit zipfile is now scummvm-2.8.1.exe instead of scummvm.exe. The 32-bit zipfile and Windows 95+ zipfile are named correctly without the version appended.

This indeed breaks shortcuts and scripts and expects the user to endlessly update them in hopes new versions will keep rolling :-).

Luckily at least as a temporary solution manually renaming to scummvm.exe seems to work. I just hope it doesn't break anything.

That's how I noticed it: it broke my scoop update script. It's most likely just an oversight, as none of the other versions (zip or installer) have the version number in the filename.
