[launcher] Add pipetx to wallet on win32 platform #2017

Requires #2009

This adds the pipetx flag to wallet initialization when running on the windows platform, so that the app can perform correct fetching of the grpc port during wallet startup and allows us to get rid of port detection via logs, which is brittle.

This requires the app to be compiled with an electron version 4 or higher, due to the correct function only being available on libuv 1.23+.

When testing this you might need to remove the entire node_modules and app/node_modules for the correct version of the module to be compiled. The win32ipc module does not work when using yarn build && yarn start, only with either yarn dev or yarn package.

Close #1712.

[launcher] Add pipetx in win32
After upgrading to electron 4+, libuv now provides the appropriate
function so that the file descriptor can be exported from the win32ipc
module and used during the launching process in windows.
