WIN: Jump list support in Windows 7
|Reported by:||SF/sven3000||Owned by:||sev-|
The attached patch is a proof of concept of how Windows 7 jump lists could be supported by ScummVM. The code calls the SHAddToRecentDocs function whenever a game is launched, causing the games to be added to the "Recent" category in the jump list. A user who has ScummVM pinned to the taskbar would be able to quickly launch a game using the jump list without going through the launcher.
Currently, I'm abusing the OSystem::engineInit function for this purpose, as it's the only function on the OSystem class I could find that would be called just before a game launches. There may be a better place to do this.
In theory the code I added shouldn't break anything on older versions of Windows, but this needs testing.
