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,
