The application manifest which gives information to the operating system, such as in which way the assembly should be deployed and will check whether administrative elevation is required or not.

This is processed before the .NET-managed hosting environment loads to the assembly.

An application manifest is an XML file that describes and identifies the shared and private side-by-side assemblies that an application should bind to at run time. These should be the same assembly versions that were used to test the application. Application manifests may also describe metadata for files that are private to the application.
