Can anyone tell me anything about manifest files? Anything at all. I have never worked with them until now and they are a mystery to me. I have to include one in a build and I only get an error at run time and the error is not helpful in my effort to track down or figure out what is wrong.

I have an "Inside COM" Microsoft Press book but when I look up "Manifest" in the Index there is no entry.

There are no compile errors in the code. I only get a clue that something is wrong during run time when I get this error:
