Do I absolutely need Microsoft.VC80.CRT.manifest?
« on: January 13, 2011, 11:49:29 PM »
I am using a simple subset of the full WCL functionality (Enumerate radios, discover devices, connect, Serial protocol), and I don't see why I need Microsoft.VC80.CRT.manifest and associated DLL's.  I don't see any difference in functionality in my application if I delete the reference.

What functions are included with this reference, and can I live without them?

THX!

Manifest it required for correct loading VC dlls. WCL for .NET is written on C++/CLR, not on C# (it is mixed assembly) and it requires some VC runtimes whcih can not be referenced directly. only by manifest. And it absolutely does not matter how much functions from WCL you use.
