SmartAssembly breaks the app.manifest functionality...

I have custom settings that change UAC, etc. for my .exe and it doesn't appear that SA respects the existing manifest when rebuilding my .exe.

I created an app.manifest that solves this problem (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1577 ... -installer), but after processing the assembly the problem is back.

Renaming my .exe and setting assembly properties to something other than Setup/Installer is not an option.

The assembly intended for the original app.manifest file needs to be read an modified for use with the SA assembly output.

    There is a risk that SmartAssembly might be pruning some of the workarounds in your manifest.
    Can you trace the problem to a specific SmartAssembly feature (such as Pruning) ?
