I'd like to point out that on some configurations (at least mine), you 
really need to specify /MANIFEST option to the linker, even though MSDN 
documentation seems to imply that /MANIFEST behavior is ON by default.
My config:
beta version of Windows 7
MSVS 2008 with 32-bit C/C++ Optimizing Compiler Version 15.00.21022.08 
for 80x86
