App compatibility manifest

Last week, we’ve added application compatibility manifests to LibreOffice libraries and executables. This is intended to allow the program to run in current OS context, instead of switching to a previous (namely, Windows Vista in case of absent manifest section) OS compatibility context. The effects of this are listed in a MS KB (this is alternative link just in case).

Currently we declare compatibility with Windows 7 through Windows 10. This change is integrated into current master towards LibreOffice 6.0.
