Service config files

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I've written a program at work which I'm turning into a Windows service. The program relies on a configuration file. My question is, what is the customary storage location for the configuration file for a service? I am assuming at this point that the cleanest place is in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\<my app>\, but I would like to be sure. I guess the config file could also go in C:\Program Files\Common Files\<my app>\? I would like to avoid touching the registry if possible. Cheers, - DH

Is this an Application Configuration file or just a config file (like myConfig.config as opposed to app.config)? If it's a normal config then yeah, stick in the App Data path - that's what I do.
