Windowsfication of CloudStack Management Server

Diffs (updated)

  scripts/installer/windows/acs.wxs PRE-CREATION 
  scripts/installer/windows/client.wxs PRE-CREATION 
  scripts/installer/windows/start.bat PRE-CREATION 
  scripts/vm/systemvm/ PRE-CREATION 
  server/src/com/cloud/server/ 4781010 
  server/test/com/cloud/server/ 08a2097 



Tested in Linux environment after changes 
Also tested in Windows environment(For now tested on windows-8) to make sure it is getting
installed and management service is running.

Able to add zones, able to register templates, able to launch a VM when it is running on windows.

Currently though it is getting added as a windows service, not able to start the service through
windows service control manager which I am looking into currently. When run .exe file which
is installed then server is getting up and able to access cloud stack UI. 

For now The following assumptions are made:
1. SSH keys are already installed
2. JAVA is already installed
3. tomcat is already installed

This patch contains the following new files related to WiX tool (To compile and run we need
this tool)
1. acs.wxs
    The following command will be used to compile
      "<Path To WiX Tool>\bin\candle.exe" acs.wxs
2. client.wxs
    The following command will be used to generate the above file
      "<Path To WiX Tool>\bin\heat" dir client -gg -cg Test  -ke -sfrag -template fragment
-out client.wxs  -var wix.SourceClient -dr WEBAPPS
    The following command will be used to compile the above generated file
      "<Path To WiX Tool>\bin\candle.exe" client.wxs
3. The following command will be used to generate .msi file
      "<Path To WiX Tool>\bin\light.exe" acs.wixobj client.wixobj -out acs.msi  -ext
"C:\Program Files (x86)\WiX Toolset v3.8\bin\WixUIExtension.dll" -dSourceClient=SourceDir\client
