 > Hm, this is pretty unfortunate especially as we probably want to test
 whether the bundling mechanism is working on Windows as well properly.
 But, yes, I think we could try that route. I am not really inclined to
 wait for that for 5.5.1, though, as #18169 and #18168 are more important
 and I would like to see some testing with this approach.

 Which means I think we back out the Windows change until we have a proper
 solution and ship 5.5.1 only with OS X and Linux emoji support fixing the
 Windows related bug in the next stable release.
