    configuration settings problem

    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.Text;
    using System.Configuration;
    namespace ConsoleApplication1
        class Program
            static void Main(string[] args)
                string astring;
                astring = ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings["avalue"];
    Warning 1 'System.Configuration.ConfigurationSettings.AppSet tings' is obsolete: 'This method is obsolete, it has been replaced by System.Configuration!System.Configuration.Configur ationManager.AppSettings' C:\Documents and Settings\mixalis\Local Settings\Application Data\Temporary Projects\ConsoleApplication1\Program.cs 14 23 ConsoleApplication1

    In another forum I found :

    The most likely issue is that you're missing a reference to the System.Configuration.dll. This particular deprecation was certainly one of the most confusing, because the new type is actually in a completely different assembly. System.Configuration.ConfigurationSettings was in System.dll.
    but I cannot understand what I should change!!! Can you help???

    xml file
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <add key="avalue" value="mike" />

    Do exactly as you were told:

    ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings is obsolete.

    Instead, use ConfigurationManager.AppSettings'

    To do so, don't forget to include System.Configuration in your references.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
