About Application Config file

Dear All,

I've an application running from the network server. The config file
includes some application setting and the connection string inside. If I
want the application to read the config file from client machine instead of
server one, how can I do it? Suppose I specify the config file location
under the system directory in client machine. Thanks

Hi,

You cant specify the location of the app.config file. Try storing
the information in an xml file on the local machine.

If you want, I can e-mail you a DLL that I made that provides real-time IO
to your .config files, and also enables you to specify which config file to
use. It also provides some other very specific settings that I've found very
handy, including being able to edit the userSettings protion of web.config
files in real-time.
This is a standalone DLL, not needing any other dependencies.
