I too am wanting this functionality.

I was thinking of modifying the ConfigSectionhandler.cs. In the Create method using Path.GetFullPath on the appFolderName element. That way you could enter something like .\ and it saves it in the config class as c:\temp\Appupdater\... or where ever you are running the AppStart exe from.

Does this make sense??

I haven't tried this yet I'll let you know how it goes.

i'm trying to solve this problem to. No luck so far but I have som Ideas. If you use a setup wizard project you could write your own Custom Actions. This Action could rewrite the App1.exe.config file during tyhe setup install. The Action might be able to use AppDomain.CurrentDomain.BaseDirectory or the path that the user just choosed in the i setup wizard. ---Maybe.
Then we could choose not to include the App1.exe.config in the next release version. But I not sure if I will have to distribute the config file in future releases. So this may not be the right solution.
