Hi All,

Where are application settings stored in vb.net? The app.config file?

The reason that I am asking is that I have written a winforms app. This app, does not make use of any other files/references apart from the .net framework of course.

My app has a couple of User settings in it. I am able to change and save these settings while the app is running. If I copy my app to a different folder (just the executable, no config file), I am still able to change the user settings and save them.

I am just wondering where these settings are being saved??

Thanks
