I created a VB.net app using Visual Studio 2008. I've been programming in VB asp.net for years and thought that I would try my hand at a simple application to sort some of the archived emails on our server.
I created the application with a config file with the thought that I would then be able to use the application on serveral different servers that store the archived files in different locations without having to recompile the program for each server.
When I publish the application it makes a setup.exe which is foreign to me. I guess that Microsoft eliminated standard MSI packages and now has a "click once" installer package. Well now that I'm done giving you some history on my situation here is my problem.
When I install the app on the server it puts the files in the frustratingly buried location of "C:\Documents and Settings\admin\Local Settings\Apps\2.0\2H69XTWK.OHX\QW0E6L41.5N1\dele..tion_4ebea5cbbf70dc46_0001.0000_9b33683a71325b11". If there is a way to change the install location please let me know.
I found the config file and the executable and the config file in the same folder:
When I try and edit the config file to point the application to correct path for the archived files it still uses the old path that it was originally compiled with. Am I editing the wrong file?
