Running a packaged UE4 game with app-local dependencies on a clean Windows machine will fail due to missing XInput DLLs. These components are not distributed with Windows by default any more. We should include these

Steps to Reproduce
  • Check the "Include AppLocal Prerequisites" option from the packaging settings dialog
  • Package a UE4 template project for Windows
  • Run the project on a machine with a clean Windows 7 installation. Note that it fails due to missing DLLs.
