    I am trying to embed manifest in my TCL executable.
    This application is an admin program and hence I would like to provide
    requestedExecutionLevel=requireAdministrator in the manifest.

    I am using mt.exe as following
    mt.exe -manifest myapp.exe.manifest -outputresource:myapp.exe;1

    Manifest gets added but the size of resulting exe drop from 1422KB to 688KB
    In short file gets corrupted and cannot be run on any version of windows.

    If I try same thing on a visual C++ binary it works perfectly fine.

    Is mt.exe partial towards visual studio generated binaries?
    How about manifesting executables created in Perl, TCL or any other launguage?
