I'm saving user settings in the winform app.config (appSettings) section. I understand the config file loads upon winform load, however I need to somehow Reload the config file or restart the winapp. I've tried the code belows from another persons advice, but it doesn't seem to have any effect.

    I've read that link, which is a good one, before.

    Q. Is there a way to Re-Load the app.config?

    You should not use the app.config to dynamicly store information in. Use a resource file or a homemade xml file for it instead. That will also solve your reload problems.
