Basic Application template missing manifest? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I apologize if this is an idiotic question or posed in the wrong forum. I'm brand new to Visual C++, I just downloaded the Express Edition 8.0, then followed the instructions provided for installing the Platform SDK. At the last step, where I create a Win32 Console App and attempt to run it, I get the following error:

    Debug Error!

    Program: ...


    An application has attempted to load the C runtime library without using a manifest. This is an unsupported way to load Visual C++ DLLS. You need to modify your application to build with a manifest. For more information see the "Visual C++ Libraries as Shared Side-by-Side Assemblies" topic in the product documentation.

    So, I checked out the topic and still don't have a clue as to what a manifest is, how I would go about modifying my application to build one, and why this isn't already done in the template. Anyone have a quick fix to offer?
