Deployment and Encryption Of App.Config For WIndows Forms Releases Two App.Config Files - One Encrypted One Not RRS feed

  • Question

  •                 The title says everything - I am deploying an application and there are two files that are being created upon setup and load event. I am encrypting the app.config connection string using MSDN code that I found. However, when I deploy and run the program it creates two folders in my AppData/2.0/ folder structure with two ApplicationName.exe.config files. One of them is encrypted as you would expect, the other is not. I am not sure what is going wrong or how to prevent the application from creating two app.config files but especially the one that is not encrypted. Thank you!
