MyApp.exe.confi g and App.config

In development for a windows app, is it proper to manipulate and keep
versions of the MyApp.exe.confi g or just the App.config file?

With VS2003, you have better to name your config file "App.config ". Doing
this way, it will automatically be copied to your bin file and renamed so as
to match your binary file.

I normally add a app.config file to my VS.NET project which I maintain as a
baseline for the executable.

VS.NET will copy the above app.config to myapp.exe.confi g file in the output
(bin) folder of the project.

Once the project is deployed to a users machine, via a setup project for
example. I will change myapp.exe.confi g on a per machine basis, with the
understanding that any future deployments (setup projects) may overwrite the
existing file.

Hope this helps

I would like to Exclude MyApp.Exe.Config from my Setup Package as I don't want it to get overwritten during upgrade installation of my application. If I remove app.config while building the setup, it removes existing app.config on the target machines and if included, it overwrites the existing ones. I tried editing the msi package and removing the app.config file from the table but it did not work. Any

Hi, I need to dragdrop message items from Outlook (2002 and 2003) to my application. I successfully implemented DragDrop from Explorer to MyApp but I didnt find how to properly code DragEnter/DragDrop events to handle Outlook objects? When Outlook objects are dropped on Explorer, a file is created with the subject as the name. I would like to recreate a similar behavior in MyApp.

Hi to everyone At the moment, I am converting a .Net 1.1 application to 2.0. As the My.settings did not exist in the 1.1 framework, the "101 VB.NET Sample" "How to configuration settings" was used. At the moment, the App.exe.conf is stored under "Program Files\MyApp". As read/write access is needed to the Application configuration file, I have to change the current approach to get the application running under Windows Vista.

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
