No, but you can simply delete the Squeak.exe.manifest alongside
Squeak.exe.  What might work and be even better would be to copy Squeak.exe
to e.g. ScaledSqueak.exe, Squeak.ini to ScaledSqueak.ini but /don't/ copy
Squeak.exe.manifest to ScaledSqueak.exe.manifest and run ScaledSqueak.exe.
If this works please let me know.

I can easily add this info to a README.

Here is why: MS Windows provides an easy way to turn off automatic scaling
