Since app.config is just XML of course you can read it... any XML library will cope just fine :)

Like I said, just use any one of the plethora of XML libraries available for C/C++

http://www.xmlsoft.org/
http://xerces.apache.org/xerces-c/
http://www.grinninglizard.com/tinyxml/

Anyone should do the job. Of those three Xerces is probably the best but also probably overkill for your simple needs. I'd probably consider libxml for what you are doing.

You could also code your own XML decoder... it's not (that) hard. I'd stick to a proven library thought.

Hi pgnatyuk,
  This code i already done in visual c++ 2008 but in MFC it's something different.
so i am not expecting this one. Also i dont want to use third party tools. I need pure MFC application code to read values from app.config. Hope your's reply.

Thanks

It cannot be pure MFC app. It can be pure Microsoft approach (or a kind of).
Take a look:
#import  raw_interfaces_only
using namespace MSXML2
It's not about MFC. It's more about COM.

MSDN. Program with DOM in C/C++
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms759192(VS.85).asp

IXMLDOMDocument is here:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms756987(VS.85).asp
There is a simple code in the bottom.

In this article you will see more MFC-like samples:

If you are in a hurry then use pure C++ based xml binder
http://www.codesynthesis.com/products/xsd/ 
and grab App.config XSD files from say c:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Xml\Schemas.
Those should be DotNetConfig.xsd and so on.

Just a tiny point:
Is your app coded in .net (this is a .net area) or MFC.  They are NOT the same.

Using this solution, I can achieve in a Windows Form Application. In MFC, I finally choosed INI file to get the data instead of app.config.

Thanks to all
