Game Element (Gaming Extension)

Description
Registers a game in Game Explorer on Windows Vista and later. The executable must have an embedded Game Definition File. For more information about Game Explorer and GDFs, see The Windows Vista Game Explorer. This registration is accomplished via custom action.

On Windows XP, this element instead records the same information in the registry so that later upgrades to Windows Vista register the game in Game Explorer.
