This patch fixes an issue that on the first start of KMyMoney (and on some computers on every start for example reported by https://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=69&t=141673&sid=ba4dcaa26018f16e19d21c58c34ad4e9) 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.

FIXED-IN:4.14.36
BUG:384334

Compiled at https://build.opensuse.org/package/show/windows%3Amingw%3Awin32/mingw32-kdelibs4 and tested with KMyMoney snapshot for Windows downloadable from https://software.opensuse.org/package/mingw32-kmymoney-portable
