Suppress Startup Banner

Yes (/nologo) specifies that standard Microsoft copyright data will be concealed when the manifest tool is started. Use this option to suppress unwanted output in log files, when you run mt.exe as part of a build process or from a build environment.

Yes (/verbose) specifies that additional build information will be displayed during manifest generation.

Assembly Identity

Uses the /identity option to specify an identity string, which comprises the attributes for the <assemblyIdentity> Element (ClickOnce Application). An identity string begins with the value for the name attribute, and is followed by attribute = value pairs. The attributes in an identity string are delimited by a comma.

The following is an example identity string:

Microsoft.Windows.Common-Controls, processorArchitecture=x86, version=, type=win32, publicKeyToken=6595b64144ccf1df
