Hi Martijn,

I tested building the frontend (VS05 only, since I only have VS2010) and 
running the WIX install script. After the appropriate changes everything 
worked as expected, I encoded some albums to success. I only have a very 
minor cosmetic suggestion to make. To show the FLAC icon in Program and 
Features, I added the line

<Property Id="ARPPRODUCTICON" Value="flac.ico" />


<Icon Id="flac.ico" SourceFile="../FLAC frontend/app.ico" />

which makes finding the entry a bit easier, and also might look more 

The frontend looks clean and good, well done. :)
