What is Manifest?

Assembly metadata is stored in Manifest. Manifest contains all the metadata needed to do the following things.
  • 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 languages (MSIL) code or in stand-alone PE file that contains only assembly manifest information.
