I've created my own custom settings provider to save user settings (formerly in the user.config) to a database. To point the particular settings that are to be saved to the database I specified
for each property to point to the BlobSettingsProvider instead of allowing them to default to the LocalFileSettingsProvider.
Now I need to convert existing user.configs to save to the database on the fly - a one time conversion. Because I've now specified the properties to use the BlobSettings provider they can no longer access the local user.config.
Does anyone have any thoughts on how best to accomplish this conversion (i.e. read the local user.config and populate the BlobSettingsProvider). The app can be run as a ClickOnce installed app or as a simple .net app - finding the correct local user.config looks to be a problem.
