Basic .NET Framework

(A) What is Manifest?Assembly metadata is stored in Manifest. Manifest contains all the metadata needed to do the following things (See Figure Manifest View for more details):

· Version of assembly

· Security identity

· Scope of the assembly

· Resolve references to resources and classes.

· The assembly manifest can be stored in either a PE file (an .exe or .dll) with Microsoft intermediate language (MSIL) code or in a stand-alone PE file that contains only assembly manifest information.
