VS2010 Ultimate - C# - Whats is the location of the file config.ini

Hello guys.

The code below creates the file config.ini with the values used by the User when the app is closed.
void Form1_FormClosing(object sender,FormClosingEventArgs e)
            {
            IniFile ini=new IniFile(Application.StartupPath+@"\\config.ini");

Open in new window

When running the app in VS2010 Ultimate, the file config.ini will be saved in the app directory\bin\Debug.
By publish, install and run the app, I can not find the file config.ini.
What is the location of the file config.ini?

Thanks in advanced,

The config.ini file will be in the same directory as the EXE file that was run. Let's say your app executable is called MyApp.exe. Let's say your install places it in C:\MyAppDir. When you run C:\MyAppDir\MyApp.exe, the config.ini file will be in that same directory: C:\MyAppDir\config.ini.

UNLESS, you're using ClickOnce to install. According to Microsoft's docs for Application.StartupPath:

This path will be different depending on whether the Windows Forms application is deployed using ClickOnce. ClickOnce applications are stored in a per-user application cache in the C:\Documents and Settings\username directory.

Dear lisfolks,
Thank you.

Happy New Year.

We show the Documents ad Settings folder.
However as you can see below, it is a shortcut.
I could not access the file generated config.ini!

My app is already running perfectly, except that my User wants to access the file config.ini.

I need stores the value of a NumericUpDown field in a external file.
When the User clicks the close button, the value of the NumericUpDown automatically be saved in the external file xxxx.ini in the My Docucents folder.
When the app is called, automatically restoring the value in this file xxxx.ini for the NumericUpDown field.

Have any tips?

Thanks in advance,
ocaccy
