I have a atl project which works on namespace extension to create a virtual drive.
problem is in windows XP ,by default common control library 5 is being used and i want it to use common control library 6. i googles it and find that embedding a manifest file is the way to go. so ive used following to add the manifest file

#pragma comment(linker,"\"/manifestdependency:type='win32' \
name='Microsoft.Windows.Common-Controls' version='' \
processorArchitecture='*' publicKeyToken='6595b64144ccf1df' language='*'\"")

but its still not solving the problem,the manifest file is created but windows xp still loading the common control version 5. can anyone tell me why is that or what am i missing ?
