Qt not passing details to Visual Studio linker to generate .manifest file
"This":http://developer.qt.nokia.com/wiki/Build_Standalone_Qt_Application_for_Windows guide tells to
@mt.exe -manifest Hello.exe.manifest -outputresource: Hello.exe;1@
after building the project, applying the manifest file to the .exe. I was suprised when I found out there is no .manifest file. After posting a thread in the Microsoft Visual Studio forums, they told me that the .manifest file is created with a linker. Why doesn't Qt pass a line to the linker to make the .manifest file? I don't think it should be done manually.
How did you build your project? Where you using the Visual Studio add-in or qmake (maybe through Qt Creator)?
I'm trying to make a standalone .exe for my application. I'm using "this":http://developer.qt.nokia.com/wiki/Build_Standalone_Qt_Application_for_Windows guide.
I was successful while building with mingw32, but this problem still exists :)
