VS2012:InstallShield2013: App.manifest file

I'm using VS2012 & InstallShield2013 LE. It works great & I could make the installer without any problem.

In Win 7 OS, when I clicked on the application, it didn't launch. I get in to installed directory & right click and run as an Administrator.

I figured it out that I have to add 'app.manifest' in the VS project. I have added it and generated the installer. When I installed the application, the application is not working at all.

How can i add 'app.manifest' in the VS project & include in the InstallShield2013 as embed resource and give UAC rights to everyone?

Thank you very much in advance.

Best Regards,

Hi Karthik,

I hope you have successfully integrated Visual Studio with InstallShield Limited Edition. After creating the Application Manifest to your project, kindly go to Project Properties-> click on UAC setting and change the permissions to:


Project Properties > Configuration Properties > Linker > Manifest File->

Change the 'UAC Execution Level' to the desired value.

The following is the general format to mark the applications with a requested execution level:


Hope this helps.
