undoing AppManifest

Thanks to Igor Djordjevic who brought this to my attention.

To undo AppManfest (restore the default manifest) you have to force the IDE to regenerate the default resource file. And you can achieve this by following these steps:

- delete the external application manifest which AppManifest has added it (Application.exe. manifest).

- delete the default resource file (Application.res).

In Delphi2007 and Delphi2009 it's a little bit difficult if you want to change the embedded manifest in the Delphi projects, let us say for example if you want to change the Vista UAC options to set the "requestedExecutionLevel" to "requireAdministrator", even there are some workarounds, but these workarounds have "side effects" and need extra work from developers, while in other development environments like Visual Studio this task is quite easy, and you can add manifests to projects like any other items, Now this new Delphi Add-In AppManifest will make this task easy in Delphi as well,
