C# Manifest File Question

Posted 15 January 2008 - 12:06 PM

I followed the steps outlined here for including a manifest file:

Does it matter if the manifest file is in the directory where the
source code is or should it be in the directory where the executable
code is?

From what I understand it becomes an embedded resource and thus inside the program. But I would keep it with the exe file itself just to make sure that any time the exe is executed it would find it locally. However, try experimenting to see if you even need it once it has been embedded. I think a copy is hashed and included in the exe so you don't need the file separate anymore.
