How do I embed a manifest file into my exe

A Win32 resource must be added to your .exe. The type of the resource must be "RT_MANIFEST" and the resource id must be "1". An easy way to do this is with Visual Studio.NET:

  1. Open your exe in VS (file -> open file)
  2. Right click on it and select add resource
  3. Click "Import..." from the dialog
  4. Select your manifest file
  5. In the "Resource Type" field, enter "RT_MANIFEST"
  6. In the property grid, change the resource ID from "101" to "1".
  7. Save the exe.
