Application configuration file deleted when building ...

P: n/a
Hi people

We have a strange (unexpected) problem with our application configuration file. When we place the config file in the same directory as the assembly it is deleted when we build our project. The name of the config file is "App.exe.config" with App the name of our application (the executable is App.exe)

We tested the same thing in another project (which is totally different), and there the file is _not_ deleted. However, the file is also named something like App.exe.config. We tried to look for differences in the project, but we did not find any

Has anyone heard of this problem

Thanks
Tom.

When you rebuilt the project visual studio deletes the contents of the
bin/obj/debug/release folders.
