Default Using multiple config files


I need to be able to change between configuration files easily. The best way I think is to use multiple links to my application which supply the config filename on the command line.

I tried the following code:
public static void Main(string[] args)
    if (args.Length > 0)
        AppDomain.CurrentDomain.SetupInformation.ConfigurationFile = args[0];

    // Continued...
But the value of the ConfigurationFile property did not change so I looked in the Help:
quote:This property cannot be changed after the AppDomain has finished its first bind.
Why is that and how can I get around it?

Hoping for ideas...

The other way is to look into the ConfigurationManager class, which has static methods to load configuration files dynamically. There is OpenExeConfig(string) and OpenWebConfig(string).
