Hi all,

I want to know how to create manifest for my c++ private assemblies. What I have done now is keeping a static manifest file(as show below) and embed it into the dll. The down side of this approach is that I cannot update the version number in the manifest file. I want to update the version in the manifest file with the version of dll.

Please advice me if anyone knows some details on creating manifest for "private assembly"

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<assembly xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1" manifestVersion="1.0">
  <assemblyIdentity type="win32" name="MyCompany.MyDll" version=""
                    processorArchitecture="x86" ></assemblyIdentity>
