ini files or not

Hi, I am a VB6 programmer that is migrating to VB2005, and have a question on
whether ini files are still the way to go in the .net era. My apps make
heavy use of ini files in vb6, and am trying to decided if maybe I should use
the registry. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Vocoder,

The answer is easy. It is or the registry or XML files in whatever format.
The INI file is a little bit outdated. (Which does not mean that you are not
allowed to use it).

I know that Herfried likes it. He is active in the newsgroup

microsoft.public.dotnet.langages.vb

In .Net, the recommended (and well-supported) practice is to use Application
Configuration files, which are XML files that are represented in memory by a
number of classes in the System.Configuration namespace.
