  • Hi MarkRedd,

    Thank you for posting here.

    How do you want to obtain the manifest file?

    The Windows SDK includes C++ and managed code samples. The samples are located under "%MSSDK%\Samples\WinBase\Eventing”. Each sample folder contains a “readme” file that tells you how to build and run the sample. Use the most recent SDK for the most up-to-date samples.

    The samples contain an XML instrumentation manifest (.man) that describes the events that the sample will log. You can use your favorite text editor to edit the manifest or you can use the EcManGen.exe tool to edit the manifest. The EcManGen tool is available in the SDK located in the "%MSSDK%\bin folder.

    For more details, please refer to the link below.

    Best Regards,
