every time I add an App.config file to my Windows forms application ,visual studio adds 2 configuration files, the first one is called App.config which gets added into the project folder , and the second one has the same name as the executable file
with the extension ".exe.config" and it gets added into the debug folder. for example if my windows forms application name is Test_App then the other configuration file name would be "Test_App.exe.config" .
why is there 2 configuration files >> App.connfig that never gets changed and Test_App.exe.config ?
At runtime when my application executes code that modifies the application configurations ,the file that gets modified is Test_App.exe.config not App.config which is located in the project folder so why is it there if it's not used?
