Visual Basic Application Settings

There appears to be some different interpretations of where application settings are to be stored in Visual Basic; I am using versions 2005 and 2008.  The Microsoft documentation recommends using the app.config file, but the documentation that I have seems specific to Windows applications, and I am creating a console application.

I do not need to store many values; I just want to be able to store some values that will change the way my console application runs.

Any direction or comments would be greatly appreciated!

The same thing applies to Console applications. The app.config file is a general construct used across console apps and winforms apps.
