Description Paul Zander 2013-10-28 09:07:46 UTC
Mono version: 3.2.3

If the domain property APP_CONFIG_FILE is set, the name of the configuration file is not changed.
Test code:

  // Set the APP_CONFIG_FILE property:
  AppDomain.CurrentDomain.SetData("APP_CONFIG_FILE", "C:\\test.exe.config");
  // Retrieve the ConfigurationFile
  string config = AppDomain.CurrentDomain.SetupInformation.ConfigurationFile;
  Console.WriteLine("ConfigurationFile = {0}", config);

This behaviour is different from the behaviour of Miscrosoft .NET.

This is a bug in the mono class library / runtime, not in Xamarin.Mac. I've moved it to the correct group.

Apologies on the very long delay in response.
