# -nowin32manifest (C# Compiler Options)

Use the -nowin32manifest option to instruct the compiler not to embed any application manifest into the executable file.

## Syntax

-nowin32manifest


## Remarks

When this option is used, the application will be subject to virtualization on Windows Vista unless you provide an application manifest in a Win32 Resource file or during a later build step.

In Visual Studio, set this option in the Application Property page by selecting the Create Application Without a Manifest option in the Manifest drop down list. For more information, see Application Page, Project Designer (C#).
