temporary solution for Windows 7 users

A portable version of Mp3 Tag Tools v1.2 Build008 has been released by independent developers here: http://portableapps.com/node/21086 this version apparently works on Windows 7.
A newer update of MTT source code compatible with latest Visual Studio has been hampered by the author's lack of license for Visual Studio, Express editions do not contain MFC required to compile the source code.
