|Summary||0001728: Rewrite portable updater in another language|
According to https://winaero.com/vbscript-has-become-optional-component-in-windows-11/ it appears that the VBScript interpreter has become an optional component in Windows 11. From my understanding, it will still be installed by default, but it is possible for individual users to uninstall the interpreter, which would break the OpenMPT update mechanism for portable versions.
If it's true that it will still be installed by default on all Windows 11 installations, there is no urgency in this, but I think we should explore potential alternatives.
