Hi, I'd like to use the <NetFx40_LegacySecurityPolicy> element in the configuration file of one of my projects in Visual Studio 2010, as described here : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd409253.aspx , but I don't know what is the XML configuration file to modify.
Can you please help?
Many thanks

Hi,

that element should go into the App.config of the project. If there is none you can add one (right click on the project in the Solution Explorer and select Add -> New item... and select "Application Configuration File").
Just add the <NetFx40_LegacySecurityPolicy> element (as described in the link you posted) to the <runtime> section (if that's not there just add it as well).

Hope that helps,
Frank
