What is the easiest way to generate / create an app.config file for a C# console application?

I'm new to console applications. I've been tasked to creating one in C# that is modeled off of a similar app written in VB. Since I've been doing web applications this far i didn't have to worry about the "web.config" file as it was automatically generated. I'm not sure of the base way to create or generate a app.config file for a console application. I'm sure i'll need to edit it for my needs but i just need the "base" of or the basic app.config file. Any help or links would be appreciated. I'm using VS 2010...

so i just created the app.Config manually and added it. I've added the "using System.Configuration" statement at the top of my main class. However it doesn't seem to recognize this:


in my code as I try to reference the config file and it's nodes / subnodes, any ideas?

i found it thanks for your input. it's not "ConfigurationManager" in a console application, it's "ConfigurationSettings".
