Installer DLLs diff

The Mac installer for Xamarin.Android 4.12.0-28 includes at least two assemblies that are currently missing from the Windows Installer:

- System.Runtime.InteropServices.WindowsRuntime.dll
- System.IO.Compression.dll

For reference, I've attached a diff of all the `.dll` files in the Windows installer vs. the `.dll` files in the Mac installer. I think the other differences might be necessary due to platform-specific requirements.

Note that the new unified installer for Windows does fix this problem, but it'd be lovely to get these assemblies into XA 4.12 too.

We have checked this issue with latest Xamarin for VS 1.12.278

Now, we are getting following dlls : 

- System.Runtime.InteropServices.WindowsRuntime.dll
- System.IO.Compression.dll
Screencast: http://www.screencast.com/t/1p9Z4k4fX7B

For Comment12, 'System.Dynamic.Runtime.dll' is still not appear. However, 'System.Runtime.InteropServices.WindowsRuntime.dll' present.

But the initial issue is fixed. Hence, closing this issue.

Please let me know if I have to check any thing else to verify this issue.
