Hi HLRosenberger;

To your question, "Can I use an application manifest to point to where DLLs are located.", no, there is an order to how a executable locates assemblies it uses.

To your question, " Is the Manifest a separate file?", no, it is part of the assembly.

See documentation, Assembly Manifest.
