How to open file with MANIFEST extension?

MANIFEST file description

A .MANIFEST file is an XML metadata file containing the program setting information for the Windows application. The .MANIFEST file provides information to handle the program as the program is executed. Further, the file can be either embedded in the program file or can be installed as a separate file within the same folder as the program file. In both the cases, the XML metadata file must be suffixed with .MANIFEST extension, while the program name and the metadata file name must be the same. For example: the .MANIFEST file can be used to specify an administrator privilege or a normal user privilege for the Windows Vista or Windows 7 OS.
