Summary0008813: Upgrade to Windows Version Helper API
Description

GetVersion and GetVersionEx have been deprecated since Windows 8.1 (NT 6.3) and always return 6.2 now.

Instead, Microsoft introduced the version helper API which requires an app manifest to be embedded. If we want to be able to get the correct OS version in the future, we'll have to upgrade to the version helper API.
