Windows: FileZilla update uninstalls previous version

When FileZilla updates on Windows automatically (latest update was to, it uninstalls the previous version first.

This is annoying, because the startmenu sorting is broken afterwards when sorted alphabetically. It also forgets the folder "Local site:", which needs to be set again manually after an update.

The NSIS installer should be changed to just overwrite what needs to be overwritten without uninstalling the previous version first.

An installer that merely overwrites an old version will leave old files behind that possibly interfere with the new version.

This is actually a design flaw in Windows, it fails to keep the start menu sorted even if user told it to sort alphabetically.
