BTW, to simplify the installer builder for my app. I created a
directory call TortoiseOverlays and dropped Documentation.exe and
License.exe into it, along with the TortoiseOverlays' msi, of course.
This way I can avoid the renaming process, which is troublesome and
error-prone.

Please Let me know if you are somehow uncomfortable with this.
