vb.net 2010 windows forms not able to use ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrin
Posted on 2012-08-13
I am trying to re-create some code I had working before. It is a simple application, I just get a database connection string from the app.config, then open a connection to a SQL server database, write to the DB, then report some results back to the screen.

What am I missing?
Thanks in advance!
