in vlc.win32.nsi.in there is ${VERSION} which is replaced by the good
version when the build system generate the vlc.win32.nsi .
If you have a vlc.win32.nsi where the variable hasn't been replaced
there have been a bug somewhere.

If the solution doesn't exist already in NSIS, it's more a nsis
developer we will need.
