vb.net 2005 accessing machine.config

2 New Member
Hello,

I have recently moved from developing windows apps using vb 2003 to vb 2005 and I have a question in regards to how the applications access the machine.config file. In 2003 if I make a reference to an app setting that is not contained in the actual applications appSettings file the application automatically searched the machine.config to retrieve the value. Is this still possible in vb 2005? If so how is it done? I tried a simple app that loads a value from app settings as follows:

Dim a As String = My.Settings.Ite m("MailServer ")

MessageBox.Show (a)

the local app settings does not have a key with this name however my machine.config file does.

Can anyone help or at least point me in the right direction.

Thanks,

However, when client calls a method that copies the file from...
