Very frequently my linker returns an error "A tool has returned an error,", which, as I have learned on this forum, usually comes from the manifest tool, which is known to be problematic. So, I routinely turn this option off: Project > Properties > Linker > Manifest File, Generate Manifest: No. But I get tired of doing this. How can I make it the default setting for all projects?
