VS .NET 2005 Config File

Last Modified: 2010-04-15
Hi Experts!

I need a config file for a project, cannot find app.config or sln01.exe.config.
Do I need to create it myself and where do I put it?

Created a Win service project in VS 2005 @ C:\Visual Studio 2005\Projects\Sln01.
Then, vS 2005 created these folders and files:

1   \Sln01
2        sln01.sln
3        sln01.suo
4     \sln01
5        sln01.vbproj
6        sln01.vbproj.user
7        service1.Designer.vb
8        service1.vb
9        \bin
10          \bebug
11                sln01.bshost.exe
12       \My Project
13                Application.Designer.vb
14                Application.myapp
15                AssemblyInfo.vb
16                Resources.Designer.vb
17                Resources.resx
18                Settings.Designer.vb
19                Settings.settings
21       \obj
22           \Debug
23                \TempPE

Thanks in advance for your help!

You need to go to file -> add file -> "Application Configuration"
Then you will have an app.config file in your project.
