Embed Manifest using RC file?!?! [SOLVED]
How can I embed application manifest using an RC file?
I want to use it with Qt Installer framework. I want to start my installer using Admin privileges.

The rc file is used to apply version, vendor, author to an exe, not for have the administrator privilege. To use rc file please add RESOURCES += ResourceFile.qrc to the pro file.
I normally use innosetup. When I install my application on Windows 7 for example, Windows asks me to confirm.
Thanks for the reply but if you take a look at "this":http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10802889/run-the-qt-application-as-administrator-on-windows and the links referenced here you can see that Admin privileges can be definitely achieved using manifest file.
I'll admit Innosetup is also a good choice but I want to use QTIFW.
If I find an answer I'll share it here.
I found a solution which I shared in another thread that was also created by me.
For acquiring Admin Rights in Qt Installer Framework, "THIS!":http://qt-project.org/forums/viewthread/35854/ would be the answer.
As for Admin Rights in applications created using Qt Creator (and of course for Windows platform) you can check out the explanations in "THIS ONE":http://blog.strixcode.com/2010/08/embedding-application-manifest-and.html
There is also sample codes in there which can be modified to meet your needs.
