Application Manifest file - Not working on Windows XP NO SP - Windows XP SP2

Application Manifest file - Not working on Windows XP NO SP - Windows XP SP2


I am just starting to port some code into C# to share with a VB6 application that I am migrating and in my testing I am getting an error in WINXP less than SP3 when I include a manifest file.

Below is what my application manifest looks like. This works on WINXP SP3 - Windows 8. I am not sure what else I need to include to get this to work in the prior versions of WIN XP. The error message that I am getting is:

"This application has faild to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<assembly xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1" manifestVersion="1.0">
<assemblyIdentity type="win32" name="MyExe" version="" />
<assemblyIdentity type="win32" name="Utils33" version="" />

Any help is very much appreciated.
