I have a WinForms .Net solution that works.

Publishes to Network share with version and updates control.

I have been controlling whether it looks at the test sql server or live sql server by using a setting in the Solution Properties.

It's been suggested to me that maybe I culd use an xml file?


For instance this is used by our MS Access 2003 team.
<SQLConnection>
	<Server>ngsrvrdev\dev</Server>
	<Database>Assignment Control System_be</Database>
</SQLConnection>

My problem is that the install of my application is different depending on the client pc being Win7, XP etc...

Suggestions? My IT Manager wants to be able to change the xml file locally and point to dev

This is my current properties
