setting a different app.config

Hi Experts,

I have a class. This class uses the assembly's app.config file to fetch some settings.
This works perfectly under normal conditions.

But when I use that class from out another assembly the class cannot find the settings in the app.config ( which is normal becuase the main app's app.config is used )

How do I ( temporarily ) force the run time to use another app.config file and treat it as the current configuration file so that when using the class from another assembly the class keeps working
