Yes, that's exactly what I tried to do yesterday.

What you mean saying signed dll? I've stuck too after a first try cause 
I'm not able to load application at all, a kind of loader error 
produced, which is related to dependency dll specified with manifest.
After a failure I tried to place a dll into a shared manifest directory 
in WinSxS/Manifests (or something like that). It didn't help.

Did you try an embedded manifest for dll or an external xml?
