You can you some third party tools also.

this is a sample of manifest file :
put this file in a same folder with your exe file then change the manifest file name as your exe name.

YourProgramName.exe.zip

Ok. hope this helps.

Jx_Man,

Tried it but doesnt have effect... Can you explain more about this?

there are manifest file. put this file in a same folder with your exe file then rename manifest file with your exe file name.
ex : exe file Name -> test.exe
manifest name -> test.exe.manifest
