Can .manifest files be included in the binaries?

Unless there is a reason for the .manifest files being separate files, how about including them in the binary?

Currently the bundle contains "flashproxy-xyz.exe" without version information. Each file has its corresponding .manifest file.

On Windows you can right click on a file and select "properties". There's a tab called "details". I assume the manifest information would go there.

If there's the reason for the .manifest files this ticket is INVALID.

I'll assign to aallai as he may know more about this.

As far as I know, the .manifest files are made as a side effect of PyInstaller.

If this is wrong or doesn't make sense, feel free to close the ticket.

It would make sense for them to be embedded, there is a ticket on the pyinstaller bug tracker about this: I'll look into it.

Thank you for linking the ticket.

I changed the priority, because I don't expect people to care about them. I don't many expect them to look in the APP folder.

I'm not worried about this. Apparently it's something that will change in a future release of PyInstaller per the bug linked above, so we'll pick it up when they make the change.
