I'm using Boost.Build with Visual C++ 8.0 and have run into a snag
regarding manifest files with executables. The manifest gets generated
correctly, however, it doesn't get copied with executable targets by the
I've read some things about including the manifest as a resource which
makes a LOT more sense to me than having to have a separate .manifest
file for every application, but I'm not sure how to do that. Any hints?
If that won't work, then I need the install rule to detect the manifest
as a dependency of the executable. However, I'd like this behaviour to
apply out of the box (i.e. without having to alter my msvc.jam). Is
there a way I can change my Jamfile to handle this?
