Tips: You may get a warning after ColorWanted startup, what shows you that ColorWanted is accessing the network. Don't worry, ColorWanted is just start a UDP server with a random port, to communicate cross processes (Between ColorWanted only).
Note: Because of Github upgrade SSL as Tls12(happened at Feb. 2018),
.NET4.0/WindowsXP was not supported since version
2.6.2(.NET4.0 dose not support
Tls12, so I removed auto update from old version
