how to embed a manifest


Learned a trick for embedding manifests today (1=exe, 2=dll):

  • mt.exe -outputresource:output.exe;1 -manifest output.exe.manifest
  • mt.exe -outputresource:output.dll;2 -manifest output.dll.manifest

  1. How to update existing makefiles to embed manifest (follow up on MSDN Example).

  2. It is pointed out to me that MSDN example on how to embed manifest is focused on changes into one makefile. In this post I outline how one can change many existing makefiles to embed manifest.
