Windows installer versions not quite right sometimes

The version info is retrieved from Mantid which has the version number written by CMake. Unfortunately, for example, if only a change to the Third_Party directory is made then the resulting installer will have the same revision number as the previous build.

I don't know how we can deal with this - since people building on Linux aren't required to have anything apart from Code/Mantid checked out, the cmake build mustn't require anything more. We could use the CMake variable that takes the latest revision number of the repository as a whole, but that would make the revision number change if, e.g., something in Documents or test data changes and I think also means building off the system tag gives the wrong number.

If we move away from subversion then the whole version numbering scheme has to change anyway....
