Summary0001687: Use modern folder picker dialog on Windows Vista and later

This modal appears when scanning a folder for plugins. See attached screenshot.

BrowseForFolder::Show (line 206 FileDialog.cpp) unconditionally calls SHBrowseForFolder.
Windows Vista and later support a folder picker dialog with better UX.

"For Windows Vista or later, it is recommended that you use IFileDialog with the FOS_PICKFOLDERS option rather than the SHBrowseForFolder function. This uses the Open Files dialog in pick folders mode and is the preferred implementation."

I'm not really a fan of the modern UI (I'm very much used to the tree structure), so this would only be added as an option.
