BGInfo again - full versioning

I was trying to get BgInfo to display the same version information for Windows 10 as that shown in winver, that is at the time of writing Version 1511 (OS Build 10586.63).

Which I didn't quite achieve ...

To create that I added two new registry keys to BgInfo:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ReleaseId

which I called OS Release ID, and

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\BuildLabEx

which I named OS Detail.

I added those to BgInfo as 

OS Detail              <OS Release ID> <OS Build Version> 

Then refreshed the desktop as in my previous post.
