C#: Config file error


I created a .config file in which I had not given any <configuration> tag. It works fine in my project. But now when I created the unit test case for the project, it is giving an exception that project.dll doesn't have <configuration> tag. If I include the tag in the .config file the project is giving an error. I am using vs-2008. I created the .config file as:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?> <appSettings> .... ..... </appSettings>

If I use <configuration> tag in .config file the error comes in the project and testcase works fine. the error comes as:


The root element must match the name of the section referencing the file, 'appSettings'


As I remove the <configuration> tag, the error comes in unit testcase as:

unit test runner failed to load test assembly. jetbrains.resharper.taskrunnerframework.taskexception.configuration system fail to initialize. jetbrains.resharper.taskrunnerframework.taskexception.configuration file project.dll doesnot have <configuration> tag.


You need to wrap the <appSettings> in a <configuration> section. e.g.:

<pre class="lang-xml prettyprint-override"><?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?> <configuration> <appSettings> ... </appSettings> </configuration>
