In my case there will be no user enterface.  My application will be part of updating the clients new version names of
MS Access applications (currently have 48 different Access apps). Hopefullly my new application will:
          a) MY application wiil start
          b)  read an app. config file.  The app.config will exist  in the same directory as the application.
          c)  Application will then open MS Access application as indicated in the app.config file.

This is because .config files are XML files. So what you found in your searches is probably OK.
You can use the ConfigurationManager class and use its OpenExeConfiguration method to load the app.config file
