Default FlexSim HC 5.0.4 Release

It's always good to get the first minor release out after a major release of the software, because inevitably there are a number of bugs discovered in the first two months after a major release that need cleaned up. The HC 5.0.4 release that just went out this morning fixes a number of significant bugs, and includes several important improvements. I've included a list of changes below.

Thank you for simulating your healthcare systems with FlexSim HC 5. I very much appreciate all the feedback we've received over the last two months. You'll see that we've listened!

(p.s. there's no need to uninstall the previous version before installing this HC 5.0.4 version)
