I've an appserver and client application in my system. I created shortcuts to the EXE files and keep in the desktop. Whenever I modify the App.config file of the applications I need to rebuild the solution in order to take them to effect. So that only I launch the shortcut file I could see the modification in my application. How to resolve the issue?

I would like to launch the applications through shorcut even after modifiying the app.config file without recompling the application.

Please assist.

where are you shortcuts pointing? Are they pointing to exe files in the bin folder of your application?

if they r pointing to bin folder, then yes you have to build the project. Otherwise, you have to update the config file in your bin folder instead of project.
