It would be kind to be able to detect a missing DMIDECOD.EXE (DOS) or 
DMIDECODE.EXE (LFN platforms, likely thus only Windows/ReactOS) only 
once, instead of ending up with
6 times the line "bad command or filename" (sent to stdout only, unable 
to redirect to textfile). Searching current directory, flashrom's 
directory as well as entire path, should do, I guess.
