Searching MSDN or Google would give you all the information you need -
 basically you edit an XML file with the appropriate info. I do 
remember seeing somewhere though that DLL-via-manifest support has 
become deprecated in Windows 7 and onwards due to it causing more 
problems than it solves, and off the top of my head I don't know what 
they're intending to replace it with. That said, there is no reason 
why it would ever cease to function as too much of Microsoft's own 
stuff is heavily dependent on it.
