Editor to read application configuration




I am looking for an editor that will allow a user to edit application
configuration easily and I have found below;


Unfortunately it does not read my app.config (given below). Could someone
please give me a quick hint as to what can I do to fix this?

Well, this doesn't give an error in VS.NET, so it seems valid to me.

You should contact the author of the app and ask him what the error is,
since he wrote the program, it would seem.

The source is also available from the codeproject site, so you should be
able to debug it yourself as well.
