I suppose wrong 'mt' command is called.
For manifest action Microsoft's 'mt' is required, so try to run in
command line following command and compare the first lines of the output:

C:\>mt /?
Microsoft (R) Manifest Tool version 5.2.3790.2014

command is called taht's actually a utility to control magnetic tape drive.
