Default Adding UAC manifest to my code for Windows Vista

Hello everybody,
I wrote an invoicing package earlier this year that I sell on my site. The only problem is that Windows Vista UAC does not allow me to write into the Windows directory or a certain part of the registry. Being able to do this allows the potential buyer to test my software for 15 days. In Vista because of the UAC security not allowing my software to write to the registry, the 15 days is about 3 billion thus giving the potential buyer my software for free.

I think that this is what I need to know.
How do I add a UAC Manifest to my VB.Net 2005 code.

A nice set of simple instructions from start to finish would be good as I can't seem to find any.

I've found an XML manifest on the internet but I have not got a clue what to do with it.

I program in XP Pro but I've only just got Vista RC2 for testing my software. I do not code in Vista, I'll start next February.

Thank you
Simplicity is the key
