What is the difference between ConfigurationFileMapping and ExeConfigurationFileMapping RRS feed

  • Question

  • I mean the real difference. What are they doing? What are they for, and why is there no lecture about it? And please, don't link me to the senseless msdn-articles. If i would want to hurt myself, i would just do it.

  • Hello,

    The ConfigurationFileMap class is used to specify the path of the machine configuration file, commonly named Machine.config.

    The ExeConfigurationFileMap class provides a means to define a custom configuration file hierarchy for .exe applications. The ExeConfigurationFileMap class can specify a single path or multiple paths related to configuration files.
