    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!

    Hello Kyle,

    The App.Config file is generated automatically when there are custom settings in your project. You should specify a custom configuration file in this scenario, however this question is outside of the scope of our controls. I recommend that you direct your question to the appropriate MSDN forum.
