    In the process of trying to resolve issues with the display of bluray menus I created a new Windows 10 install on my HTPC and did a clean install of 1.16.0 pre.

    When I tried to play any bluray it falied with an error 'unable to play: index', with the logs showing failed to load bluray.dll. When I installed MP 1.15.0 instead, I noted that the installer now installed the Visual C++ 2013 redistributable and bluray playback worked in both 1.15.0 and following a reinstall 1.16.0 pre (but still with the menu issue I am seeing).

    Therefore it looks like bluray.dll has a dependency on the VC++ 2013 redistributable - suggest bluray.dll needs to be recompiled against VC++ 2015 or the VC++ 2013 redistributable check needs to be incorporated back into the 1.16.0 installer?

    Hope this helps somebody,
