You should stop correcting people about things you know nothing about.

The registry is the old school way of doing configuration. App.config is the way that all .net apps are supposed to use. There is an entire namespace devoted to working with these files in System.Configuration. When using the .net configuration APIs, you specify whether you want to do application or user specific changes. If it is user specific, an app.config is generated in that users appdata folder.

You obviously know nothing about .net development, so why in the world would you jump in and correct the OP? I have been doing .net apps for about 3 years now and am very active in the .net open source community, and the only times I every see registry being used is when dealing with a legacy platform (like COM)
