I'm working on a project where I take code from a text file, convert it to the type VBCodeProvider, and then compile an assembly based on that code.
Everything's working fine but I need to have the assembly run with administrator privileges. If I were writing an app in Visual Studio I could indicate administrator privileges through a few lines of code in the app.manifest. I don't know where to indicate this for the assembly I'm compiling in my program though. Can you help me?
If it helps, I'm using a variation on the compiler code demonstrated in this project:

You cannot legitimately modify any assembly after it was built. Why? And if an assembly was signed (highly recommended) and then modified, it is guaranteed from loading. This is an important safety feature.
By the way, there are some tools modifying assembly for various good reasons. To best of my knowledge, they all disassemble the code, and then re-build it.
