Using the static methods and properties of the System.Configuration.ConfigurationSettings type is the recommended method for reading configuration information at runtime for versions 1.0 and 1.1 applications.


The System.Configuration.ConfigurationSettings class provides backward compatibility only. For new applications you should use the System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager class or System.Web.Configuration.WebConfigurationManager class instead. To use these two classes, you must add a reference in your project or application to the System.Configuration namespace.
