I have iteratively removed each element from the manifest
file, ending up with a completely empty one, and at no
stage was I able to avoid the "Access is denied" message.
Thus it is merely the /presence/ of the manifest file
(together with the aberrant permissions) that is sufficient
to trigger this behaviour.  Does anyone have the access
to the Microsoft toolkit that would allow the manifest file
to be merged with the .exe ?  It would be interesting to
learn if that eliminated the problem.
