What is Machine.config?

  
Machine configuration file: The machine. config file contains settings that apply to the entire computer. This file is located in the %runtime install path%Config directory. There is only one
machine. config file on a computer. The Machine.Config file found in the "CONFIG" subfolder of your .NET Framework install directory (c:WINNTMicrosoft.NETFramework{Version Number}CONFIG on Windows 2000 installations). The machine.config, which can be found in the directory $WINDIR$Microsoft.NETFrameworkv1.0.3705CONFIG, is an XML-formatted configuration file that specifies configuration options for the machine. This file contains, among many other XML elements, a browserCaps element. Inside this element are a number of other elements that specify parse rules for the various User-Agents, and what properties each of these parsings supports. (More...)

What is the difference between "Web.config" and "Machine.Config" ?

  
Configuration files are used to control and manage the behavior of a web application.
1. Machine.config
2. Web.config

Machine.Config

One Machine.config file is shared for all ASP.NET's Application. It is only one on the machine for each version of .NET Framework. If you apply anything in machine.config file then it is applied on all ASP.NET applications. Machine.config file is universal on the machine. It can be located in the %runtime install path%\Config directory.

1. This is automatically installed when you install .NET Framework or Visual Studio. Net.
2. This is also called machine level configuration file.
3. Only one machine.config file exists on a server/computer.
4. This file is at the highest level in the configuration hierarchy

Web.Config
Web.config file is only for particular ASP.NET application. each ASP.NET application has different file. One ASP.NET application can have more than one web.config file. But only one in one folder.

1. This is automatically created when you create an ASP.Net web application project.
2. This is also called application level configuration file or folder level configuration file.
3. This file inherits setting from the machine.config. If same setting key is defined in both Machine.Config and Web.config, the Web.Config setting is used.

Difference Between Machine.config and Web.config

Machine.config is automatically installed when you install .NET Framework or Visual Studio. Net.

Web.config is automatically created when you create an ASP.Net web application project.

Machine.config is called machine level configuration file. Only one machine.config file exists on a server.

Web.config is called application level configuration file.

Machine.config file is at the highest level in the configuration hierarchy.

Web.Config file inherits setting from the machine.config (More...)

Difference Between Machine.config and Web.config?

  
Machine.config->Configuration file for all the applications in the system.
Web.config->Config file for single application. (More...)

What is the difference between Machine.config and web.config?

  
The main difference between Machine.config and web.config is as follows:
Machine.config is machine level config file,means if you make any changes into this file, it will applicable for all application which exists on same machine.

While Web.config settings only applicable for application level.This file is best place to keep your connection string and SMTP like settings and so on. (More...)

In our web.config file we might have declared a section that is not configurable on our shared web hosting platform. So when we get this error we have to remove that part which is not supported in the web.config file. (More...)

Difference between native code, machine code and assembly code

  
Native code:- This term is sometimes used in places where machine code (see above) is meant. However, it is also sometimes used to mean unmanaged code. Unmanaged code is the kind of code that requires you to manually allocate and de-allocate memory, sometimes causing memory leaks (when you forget to de-allocate) and sometimes segmentation faults (when you de-allocate too soon).

Machine code:- This is the most well-defined one. It is code that uses the byte-code instructions which your processor (the physical piece of metal that does the actual work) understands and executes directly. All other code must be translated or transformed into machine code before your machine can execute it.

Assembly code:- This term generally refers to the kind of source code people write when they really want to write byte-code. An assembler is a program that turns this source code into real byte-code. It is not a compiler because the transformation is 1-to-1. (More...)

Difference between "Web.config" and "Machine.Config" ?

  
"Web.config" applies settings to each web application, while "Machine.config" applies settings to all ASP.NET applications. (More...)
