Yeah, just define SHARD_APPIDINFO. This should be easy and clean :)

We'll have to refactor quite a lot of code when we drop support for Windows
XP anyway, and then we can remove all those defines altogether.

Unfortunately to get some of the cool stuff in Windows 8 and 8.1 you need
to use a higher version. Windows 7 is the minimum you should use when
compiling LibreOffice on Windows if you want to distribute your build to
other users. We are quite conservative with this requisite but sometimes
you just have to do it ;)
