0.88 (ZIP install) - version not updated in .INI file.

(NOTE: xnview.INI file attached as a ZIP file.)

XnView: MP 0.88 - 32 bit and 64 bit

Using XnView MP ZIP install with Portable Apps launcher.
The XnView version in the .INI file does not get updated when running the new version.
[Help]-[About]-[General] -- (displays old version information)

1. XnView MP tells me there is a new update available
2. Have to look at [Help]-[About]-[What's New] to check version in change log.

To reproduce:
1. Start with a ZIP install (via extraction) of an older version of
2. Run XnView MP to create a new .INI file.
3. Verify that the older version number is in the .INI file and displays in [Help]-[About]-[General].
4. Close old XnView MP.
5. Unzip version 0.88 of over the original installation.
6. Run the new 0.88 version of XnView MP to (hopefully) update the existing .INI file.
7. Verify that the older version number is still in the .INI file and still displays in [Help]-[About]-[General].
8. Verify that the new 0.88 version displays in [Help]-[About]-[What's New].

Actual behaviour (bug):
XnView MP (from ZIP install) does not update version in .INI file :bug:

Expected behaviour:
XnView MP (from ZIP install) should update version number in .INI file when it is run.
