XIS (X-Wing Install System) ver 2.71

Description:  The X-Wing Install System, or XIS (pronounced "zis"), is designed to be a general-purpose tool for the installation of modifications for Totally Games' last Star Wars sim, X-Wing Alliance.
It is analogous to Unreal Tournament's mod install system, and this is reflected in the choice of the mod file extension, XMOD.
The original concept was done with the X-Wing Alliance Upgrade Installer, but despite the success (well, there was one annoying bug), it seemed incomplete.
I decided to re-code the entire thing from scratch, and tossed Microsoft's MFC library out the window in favour of ATL. The result is a much slimmer, faster, and more customisable platform for mod distribution.
