Is your Config file is like below ? and you are trying to fetch "ConnStr1' according to below example ?

<configuration>
  <connectionStrings>
    <add name="ConnStr1" connectionString="LocalSqlServer: data source=127.0.0.1;Integrated Security=SSPI;Initial Catalog=aspnetdb"
      providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />
  </connectionStrings>
</configuration>
