What is manifest? What is the use of manifest? Here I am describing about the manifest . Assembly metadata is stored in Manifest . And the assembly version information also stored in the Manifest. Manifest contains all the metadata needed to do the following things.
1) Version of assembly
2) Security identity
3) Scope of the assembly
4) Resolve reference to resource and classes
5) The assembly manifest can be stored in either a PE file(an .exe or .dll) with MISL code or in a stand-alone PE file that contains only assembly manifest information.
