I recently downloaded Visual C++ 2008 express edition, and when I tested it out with a simple "Hello World" program, I got the following error:

general error c1010070: Failed to load and parse the manifest. The system cannot find the file specified.

After doing some research, I found out that you could simply turn off the manifest, but the manifest is somewhat important for deployment. I am looking into making a game for my portfolio and want to make sure that I get this taken care of. Anyone know how to take care of this, or should I just turn off my manifest.

Weird...

I created an empty project the first time... got the error.... a second time ... got the error....
third time... and it worked....

Anyway, thanks for the help. Not sure what the deal was.
