Where are settings saved? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I try to figure out where a .NET 2.0 application/dll saves it's settings if no .config file is present.
    Project A contains a .config file and is referenced by Project B which is deployed. The output of Project B does not contain a .config file for Project A but saving changes works. I'd like to know where those changes are stored. There is no (hidden) file in the folder that changes, I can't find anything in users/application settings or in the registry.

  • On XP, it is stored to c:\documents and settings\user name\ local settings\ application data\ project name\ encoded name\ version\ user.config.  The italic names are changeable.
