Hi there.

Does anyone know if the new Environmental Overrides feature will provide overrides for the appSettings of a configuration (in addition to other configuration nodes)?

Yes, but the VS Integrated Configuration Editor does not work with the Environmental Overrides. It is a bug I just detected tonight and just mentioned here:

VS Integrated Configuration Editor Problems...

If you are having problems, use the Stand Alone Configuration Tool which works fine.

Thanks for the reply David. I haven't been too fond of the Integrated Configuration Editor either to this point for the reasons you mention in your post. But that is fine with me: as long as environmental overrides work with appSettings, I am a happy man.
