Add security node in Manifest RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    My application needs administrative rights as it's a web updater.
    So to prompt the user to get admnistrative right I have added the manifest entry that need to be added to my application with the below content:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
    <assembly xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1" manifestVersion="1.0">
      <assemblyIdentity
       type="win32"
        name="MyCompany"
        version="1.0.0.0"
       processorArchitecture="*"/>
      <dependency>
        <dependentAssembly>
          <assemblyIdentity
            type="win32"
            name="Microsoft.Windows.Common-Controls"
            version="6.0.0.0"
            publicKeyToken="6595b64144ccf1df"
            language="*"
            processorArchitecture="*"/>
        </dependentAssembly>
      </dependency>
      <trustInfo xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v3">
        <security>
          <requestedPrivileges>
            <requestedExecutionLevel level="requireAdministrator" uiAccess="true" />
          </requestedPrivileges>
        </security>
      </trustInfo>
    </assembly>

    But when i run it, it generates the folowing error message:
    _________________________________

    C:\...path to my application.exe
    "A referal was returned from the server"
    _________________________________
    If I remove my the trustinfo node of the manifest and run my application as admin it works fine. So i really don't understand why this error appears and it seems to have no link to my application!

    Anyone has an idea?
    Thanks in advance
