Write Namevalue pair into Config file

Hi, I have this constraint. A help would be greatly appreciated.
I have this Config file.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<configuratio n>
<configSections >
<sectionGroup name="Mainsecti on">
<section name="Connectio nString"
type="System.Na mevaluesectionH andler,System" />
</sectionGroup>
</configSections>

<Mainsection>
<ConnectionStri ng>
<add key="projcode1" value="database "/>
<add key="projcode2" value="database 2"/>
</ConnectionStrin g>
</Mainsection>

I use VB.NET to read this section.
I want to use DPAPI with Machine store. For this I have to read the
connection string from config file as name value pair, Then encrypt the
connection string & want to replace back the encrypted string into the
same section of config file.
I have an issue in writing Namevalue pair into the same section. Could
somebody please help me with writing as name value pair, as an attribute
into the section.
I used configuration management application block from microsoft to
write. But then I was unable to write namevaluepair as an attribute to a
element in a node.

A help would be greatly apprecitaed.
Thanking you
Shaun

..Net's .config file is supposed to replace the .ini files. That's all fine if all I need is to read from it. But what if I need both read and write? With .ini file, I can do that very easily with standard API. But is there API for writing the .config files? I know we can treat .config file as a regular XML file and using XML API to write to it, but is there API for writing to .config file just like we read from it? Thanks.

Can I write a file like config.ini which store the server-name, userid & password, So, my application can read the config.ini file and get the server - name, Does my concept is correct ? If yes, do any web site can provide the sample of such file or provide tutorial ?? For my current stage, i got a class object and assign the server-name to a property, even form will call this class object. Please give some advice.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
