I've been looking over most of the Lessons and got them working through Visual C++. Then I also played around and made afew changes to them and they are able to compile and run fine. But for a few of them such as Lesson 25, when I compile and run it, the exe file comes out as "Lesson25.exe.embed.manifest'. How do I change this? Any help would be great, thanks.

The .manifest file is generated by the compiler along with the .exe, but doesn't replace the .exe. Perhaps the .exe is ending up somewhere else?

No I have each lesson in a folder such as folder "Lesson25" and then within that folder there is the project file along with the cpp file. When I compile and execute this project it creates a 'Debug' folder in the 'Lesson25' folder. Usually for the other lessons the exe file in within the Debug folder but for some of them, such as lesson 25 there is a 'exe.embed.manifest' produced instead.

How do I change to just produce a exe file?
