Tip: Using mt.exe to include a manifest

A tip from Peter Harder on how to use the mt.exe tool included with the Windows SDK.

The GFA-Basic editor can not include a *.manifest file into a created *.exe file. However, the Microsoft Windows Software Development Kit (SDK) contains a file named "mt.exe" that can
include the *.manifest file after creating the *.exe file.

I uploaded an examples that includes also the mt.exe and a batch file that shows how to call the mt.exe:

Just follow the instructions in the readme.txt.
For a complete description of mt.exe tool use Google and search for "mt.exe".
