Remarks

Use ConfigurationUserLevel to specify which configuration file is to be represented by the Configuration object returned by ConfigurationManager.OpenExeConfiguration and WebConfigurationManager.OpenMachineConfiguration.

Application configuration files are in the same directory as the application and have the same name, but with a .config extension. For example, the configuration file for C:\System\Public.exe is C:\System\Public.exe.config.

Applications use a global configuration that applies to all users, separate configurations that apply to individual users, and configurations that apply to roaming users.
