[Bug] Inkscape leaves nsu***.tmp folders in TEMP

Hi, I wanted to report a bug in the Inkscape Portable launcher. The bug has been present for at least 3/4 months. Upon closing it leaves residue in the Windows Temp folder. Folders have names similar to nsuXXXX.tmp, such NSIS remnants are not removed. Could you correct, thank you.

Added Registry string

I solved it by inserting in InkscapePortable.ini file the string
[Activate]
Registry=true
to then recompile the Launcher (although perhaps I don't think this last step is necessary, unless this string is stored directly in the executable).

Confirmed

I can confirm this issue and fix. The Ghostscript custom code uses the registry plugin within NSIS. But if that plugin isn't activated in the launcher's INI, PAL won't know to properly unload and cleanup the registry plugin so you get folders in TEMP on exit. This will be addressed in the next release.

registry.dll file

It was the same thing I thought too,also because the temporary folders contained a registry.dll file, Thank you.
