VS2017 Publish project to .exe without manifest files

Jun 30 2020 3:25 PM


I have project of type Console .net framework 4.6.1. A simple hello world. No dependencies. No references.

When I right click and try publishing this project, it goes into manifest mode of publishing. Where do I change settings to make it a traditional simpler Publish, so I get a .exe file without manifest files. So that, the Publish folder can be copy pasted to any computer and it runs without issues.

Some research suggested to uncheck LINKER, but this is not available in Projects --> Properties --> Configuration

thank you
