Where can I download the Manifest Generation and Editing Tool (mage.exe) or (mageUI.exe)?

    Question

  •  

    I've searched and searched but cannot find where to get this. Every mention of it I've found claims that it is part of the Platform SDK, but I already have that installed and cannont find mage.exe or mageUI.exe anywhere.

  • Which version of the PSDK do you have installed? I have the latest (v6.0a?) and mage.exe and mageui.dll are in the 'bin' directory.

    I have no idea. I couldn't find the version information. But I do know that mage.exe and mageui.exe are not present.

    I have the following installed:

     

    • Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition RTM (no SP1 or SP1 Vista update) on Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005
    • Microsoft Platform SDK for Windows Server 2003 R2

    I don't know how to find a version number such as what you show.

     

    There is no mage.exe anywhere on my hard drive either.  [I didn't know to miss it, though .

  • My bad: it looks like mage.exe and mageui.exe are actually part of the .NET Framework SDK not the PSDK.

  • Yes, they are.  Download and install the .NET SDK.

  • If you have installed VS2008, you don't need downloaded SDK, you can run Visual Studio 2008 Command Prompt(Start->Microsoft Visual Studio 2008->Visual Studio Remote Tools->Visual Studio 2008 Command Prompt) and type mageui and then Enter ;>

    MageUI.exe - (Manifest Generation and Editing Tool, Graphical Client)

    Location:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.0A\bin\MageUI.exe
