    namespace ConsoleApplication111
    {
        class Program
        {
            static void Main(string[] args)
            {
                System.Configuration.Configuration config = ConfigurationManager.OpenExeConfiguration(ConfigurationUserLevel.None);
                Console.WriteLine(ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["Foo"]);
            }
        }
    }

    According to http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...37(VS.80).aspx
    you should rather do something like:
    Code:
    config.Sections["Foo"]
    In your code you retrieve a config object but never use it, which is rather odd.
    Have never used these classes before though
