/MANIFESTUAC (Embeds UAC information in manifest)
Specifies whether User Account Control (UAC) information is embedded in the program manifest.
The linker doesn't embed UAC information in the program manifest.
level= followed by one of
'requireAdministrator'. Defaults to
'asInvoker'. For more information, see the Remarks section.
uiAccess='true' if you want the application to bypass user interface protection levels and drive input to higher-permission windows on the desktop; otherwise,
uiAccess='false'. Defaults to
uiAccess='false'. Set this argument to
uiAccess='true' only for user interface accessibility applications.
A string that contains the
uiAccess values. May optionally be enclosed in double quotes. For more information, see the Remarks section.
If you specify multiple
/MANIFESTUAC options on the command-line, the last one entered takes precedence.
The choices for
level are as follows:
level='asInvoker': The application runs at the same permission level as the process that started it. You can elevate the application to a higher permission level by selecting Run as Administrator.
level='highestAvailable': The application runs at the highest permission level that it can. If the user who starts the application is a member of the Administrators group, this option is the same as
level='requireAdministrator'. If the highest available permission level is higher than the level of the opening process, the system prompts for credentials.
level='requireAdministrator': The application runs using administrator permissions. The user who starts the application must be a member of the Administrators group. If the opening process isn't running with administrative permissions, the system prompts for credentials.
You can specify both the
uiAccess values in one step by using the
fragment option. The fragment must be in the following form:
