Review request for kdelibs and Albert Astals Cid.

Bugs: 384334

Repository: kdelibs

Description (updated)

This patch fixes an issue that on the first start of KMyMoney (and on some computers on every start for example reported by on running kconf_update the user account control pops up and forces the user to allow or deny  this application.

Commit message

   Add Windows manifest to  kconf_update.exe
    This explicitly sets the execution level to 'asInvoker', preventing
    Windows' UAC heuristics from deciding that because its name mentions
    "update", it probably needs to escalate privileges.

Compiled at and tested with KMyMoney snapshot for Windows downloadable from
