zoo_loader.cgi manifest not embedded on win32

Reported by: jmckenna Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: 1.2.0
Component: zoo-kernel Version:
Keywords: Cc: djay


  • using my nmake.opt file from ticket:27
  • zoo_loader.cgi is generated, but zoo_loader.cgi.manifest is also generated
  • problem is that both files must be moved to the cgi-bin (the manifest must instead be embedded in the executable)

Many thanks for testing the WIN32 support.

Following intructions from here should resolve the issue. After using the nmake /f makefile.vc command line, you should run the following to embed the manifest inside the binary file:

mt.exe –manifest zoo_loader.cgi.manifest -outputresource:zoo_loader.cgi;1

Please let us know if this solve the issue.

If yes, then we probably have to add this as a step in the makefile.vc file, something like : embed-manifest. This way, when needed the user would have to use the following commands to get a compiled ZOO-Kernel embedding manifest:

nmake /f makefile.vc
nmake /f makefile.vc embed-manifest

Then we will have to add a specific section in the documentation specifying first when/why this specific step have to be run and how to use it.

  • status changed from new to closed
  • resolution set to fixed

This extra step works. I have added it as a new build target in makefile.vc, and I will document this. thanks.
