I see you couldn't find anything wrong in what I wrote...

If you are really a pro like you fictitiously claim to be then you would provide some links that back your claim. You have yet to explain why you brought up the GAC which has little to nothing to do with the registry.

If you had any knowledge, you should know that COM that preceded .net used registry to enable COM components (.exe,.dll). It stored information about version, interfaces clasid progid and much more in the registry, metadata that in .net is stored either in .net assembly or GAC, to register .dll in GAC is optional in .net, but is used to share componets, and manage version.
I just showed you that with .net microsoft HAS REMOVED the dependency from the registry. This is basic knowledge.

FYI the configuration files accessible by System.Configuration have the following drawbacks:

Of course files must have right permission, this is basic both in Windows as in Linux...

Instead an MVP advised us to use the registry as MS has recommended here...

I would suggest that you shoose better advisors in the future. Registry is the OLD way of storing application data.

If you do not have any legitimate links to back up your so called facts, then you sir are a charlatan.

I see that I hit a nerve somewhere...
I won't spend any of mine time for you, I dislike fanboys that let their libido gets in their way. You are welcome to post any inaccuracy on what I have written.
