Things like maintenance, website background, website title, favicon etc., where would it be best to store them? It would be single array of items. Do I just write it in flat CSV file, flat XML file, or use database for it (sounds pretty stupid to create single-row-table)? (*sorry for mess with tags, no idea how this question could be tagged*)

Have the Blackberry Curve 8330 and, through a USB cable, have been able to move data with my windows 7 notebook. Apparently changed something in the settings on the Curve and now when connecting the USB cable windows does not show the device and its folders. Hoping for guidance on how to restore connectivity.

I have used several methods to save a program's settings in the past. * System Registry * INI files (Encrypted\Plain) * XML file as a resource or external file * XML app.config etc. I'm wondering either: 1. What's your preferred method for saving your program's settings? 2. Is there a preffered industry standard? 3. Does .Net provide a namespace for reading writing a programs settings? 4. As VS creates settings in XML in the app.config file should I sipmly take this as preferred. In short... what's YOUR prefered method OR what's the PROPER method =0)

Hi 'Wise & Wonderful Daniwebbers', Why do I keep loosing my project settings when I add a new project to an existing solution? I have to go to every project, in the solution and re-configure each project's: * Include Directories; * Library Directories; * Linker Settings; etc., Which of the solution files, if any, can I backup then restore when it happens? * *.vcxproj? * *.vcxproj.user? * *.vcxproj.filters? other? Thanks in advance :)

Hi All, Ive noticed something that maybe prompts discussion: Large social media sites like Facebook have a notificaton settings page, where the user can select what notifications they get emails about and which ones are just displayed when you login to the site. Instead of just unsubscribing or 'the occasional community related email', maybe a more specific list of things we get emailed about could be used? Only another one of my useless brightspark ideas ;) *Matt*

Anybody else noticed changes following an update this month? My taskbar has been reset, notifications icons have disappeared, startup menu changes, wallpaper removed, libraries disconnected, recent files lists blank. I'm seriously unimpressed. For a freaky minute, I thought all my documents had been lost, until I realised that My Documents was not automatically being shown when I clicked Documents. Urgh.. this may prompt me to finally adopt Linux.

Running Windows 8.1 Pro Preview (pb part of the problem) and trying to set up Mercury mail server. No matter how I start the config (via XAMP, directly from mercury.exe, as user or as Administrator) the settings are not saved. I exit it using the File\Exit Menu items. I edited the .ini file to disable some modules, to config other ones (used the MERCURY_EXAMPLE.INI) for key names so far. The only keys I'm still missing and I can't seem to find anywhere are the username, password and SSL settings for the [MercuryC] module. Thanks in advance.

Hello! I'm creating an app where you can open Settings form and choose the background color, etc. This is how it looks like when one clicks on the color settings button: ColorDialog dlg = new ColorDialog(); dlg.Color = Properties.Settings.Default.bgdColor; if (dlg.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK) { Properties.Settings.Default.bgdColor = dlg.Color; Properties.Settings.Default.Save(); bgdColorLBL.BackColor = dlg.Color; } What am I supposed to do to apply those settings on every form my application contains?

I have a web application that needs the identification or some uniqueness of the machine that is calling it. Based on that "id" of the machine the web application will provide information back relevant to that machine. I can certainly call my website with some unique Query params that will let it know what machines the call is coming from, but that is not practical for this application, since the folks installing it will not have the ability to specify unique parameters for every machine. Ideally, if there was some INI or configuration file on the CLIENT machine that could …

Hey everyone, Usually when I create a Java application I will use the built-in Preferences class to save user preferences. I believe this saves user information to the registry on Windows, and to other locations on Linux / Mac OS X. When I need to store a serialised object, I'm forced to store to a file - but that is the only time I generally save settings to a file. My question - as I'm fairly new to C# development - is if there is something similar to Java's Preferences class in C#. What is the most highly-recommended way to …

Basically I've got a text editor which revolves around a jTextArea. There are some settings (e.g. whether line wrap is enabled) that I'd like to save to a file when the application closes, and then load up again when it runs next. I've spent a few hours trying to get it to work by saving to a plain text file and failed, then tried using a serialisable class (which probably isn't even meant to work that way) - and have eventually given up on getting it working without help :) There are two main questions I have: [B]1.
