Hi!

Is it possible to kepp all settings in My.settings when reinstalling the application.

What I have found is that you must uninstall the application before you install a new version or let the installation program remove the application for you.

But I need to keep the settings how can i do that?

I don't remember if user's settings are deleted when you uninstall an application (I think not). I never uninstall, I have a special application that synchronizes a server folder with a local folder (much like ClickOnce).
