Configuration File Schema for the .NET Framework
Configuration files are standard XML files that you can use to change settings and set policies for your apps. The .NET Framework configuration schema consists of elements that you can use in configuration files to control the behavior of your apps. The table of contents for this section reflects the schema hierarchy for startup, runtime, network, and other types of configuration settings.
For information about the types, format, and location of configuration files, see the article Configuration Files. You need to be familiar with XML if you want to edit the configuration files directly.
XML tags and attributes in configuration files are case-sensitive.
