Notes

As this is my first real project using WPF, I've come across commands as the way to handle button clicks and context menus. Eventually (hopefully sooner than later), I would like to transition to commands for all UI events.

Also, The ability to scan existing exe's and see if they are the latest would be nice. This would allow the automatic update of existing download repositories. Possible idea: compare MD5 of local file to that of the latest on FileHippo.com; if they match, its the newest. Otherwise, we assume its old. Maybe... might make a nice experimental feature shortly.

Also, I encourage anyone who has criticism, ideas, or praise to send me a message. I'm happy to hear about your experiences. Thank-you for checking into my work!
