    Question What are Manifest files & how to create and use them ?

    As everybody now wish to give their program a XP look,
    I would like to know...

    1. What are .Manifest files?
    2. What are there functions ?
    3. Can I add a .manifest file to give my program a XP look ?
    4. How can I make a .manifest file for my application ?
    5. Is it possible to give app XP look by .manifest file on m/c other than Xp ?

    Manifest files are related to DotNet

    ...at present time, using mainly Net 4.0, Vs 2010

    If you want to use side-by-side installation to deploy applications that use MSXML 4.0 to computers running Windows XP and Windows Server 2003, you must create an application manifest and deploy it with your application.

    The application manifest is an XML file that:

    a)Uniquely identifies the application

    b) Describes dependencies on specific versions of side-by-side assemblies



    Refer the below link to know how to create a manifest
