0013622: [Bug] Update fail consistently

Some notes about the recent release. Downloader is by its nature a software that need to be very frequently updated, just to keep it compatible with many video sites that constantly changes the way they deliver their videos. So staying up to date with Downloader is a key. To simplify the process, we have introduced in V an automatic update feature that is capable to update most part of the software in a very simple way: 1 click confirmation and that's all. We made it so most of the time Downloader don't even need to be restarted. However, in some case this update is not possible without "elevation", which is executing the software under administrative privileges so to gain the write access to the files/folders that need to be updated. V did not include a mechanism to trigger this elevation, which is the root cause of most if not all the update failure reported with this version. Starting from V5.0.1.57 the issue is addressed and if elevation is required, it'll be prompted. Released 2018-12-04
Updated skin engine, 1 click update of extraction engine
0013151: [Suggestion] maybe improve message about Visual C++ x86
0013553: [Bug] Conflicting OpenSSL dll disturb Downloader and prevent it from operating
0013578: [Feature Request] Visual Appearence: Update to Alphaskin 14
0013593: [Bug] Downloader fail to load with exception about OpenSSL
0013614: [Feature Request] Unsupported site: putlockers
0013619: [Feature Request] Automatic update of extraction engine

A side note about the new Automatic update engine: it's very new and designed to install hotfix and or updates when they are needed. The overall goal of this automatic update engine is to provide faster and easier solutions to download failures, often without needing to restart downloader or to open a web browser to download a new version.
So when there is a failed download in the download queue, a check for update is issued and if one is available, it can be installed in 1 click and all the failed download resubmitted automatically after the update. So far this autoupdate feature is limited to components of the network extraction engine of downloader, but it is very scalable and will be used to update parts of software such as user interface langage, visual appearance and the entire software itself, in semi-automatic (1 click) or fully automatic (0 click) way. As a warmup of this automatic update engine, on the first launch of this beta version user should be notified of the availability of an update - this is normal. Released 2018-09-12
