Embedding a manifest file into a .exe created using wisescript
Last Updated April 01, 2008
Question I am having trouble embedding a manifest file into an .exe created using Wise Script. When I use mt.exe (from Visual Studio 8 with SP1 installed) to embed the manifest file, the resulting file decreases in size from 123 KB to 23 KB and without any surprise doesn't run.
I also tried adding the manifest using Resource Hacker, file size increases in size from 123 KB to 124 KB; however, when I execute Test1.exe I get the following error: "Could not initialize installation. File size expected=168640121, size returned=126017"
How can I embed the manifest into an .exe created from Wise Script?
