Default Chapter 8 - app.config

I am struggling to get the app.config to populate the projects Properties - Settings tab. I have added the app.config file from the Time Tracker as per the instructions and changed the references in the config file from Time_Tracker to DB_Migration_Utility. Then the instruction say to open the properties of the project and select the Settings tab. At this point I should receive a message that the values from the config have been added. I do not receive this message and the Settings page does not have any item added. Anyone else run into this problem. Thanks

I have run into some problems with this with the RTM version of Visual Studio 2005. You may have to manually add these entries.

Hi Jotto,

I ran into the same problem. I re-added the entries and then went into the app.config file, made sure they were the same, then deleted the entries from before. Worked great after that!
