Problems moving data access to a separate dll RRS feed

  • Question

  • I tried moving my data access to a separate dll, but I keep getting an exception, the framework is accessing the application settings file, not the dll settings file.  I check the file gets copied and all the info is in there but it the framework accesses the main application settings file.

  • That is how framework is designed to work, it will read from the config file of which the executable is running from.

  • Kind of hard to move data to a separate dll then if you are using the Entity Framework.

  • Hi OpenXmlMadCoder,

    If you want to access the config file of dll, you would like to check the following link.


    It shows four ways about how does one specify different settings in different calling environments.
