this looks like a Willow issue rather than a Xamarin "Installer" issue. So changing the product and component. 

we may need to transfer this over to //devdiv to get someone on the Willow team to look into this.

This issue is reported for UWP, and also by design, and also upstream. This is not Xamarin at all.
