Application Settings when in Protected Mode
Is there a way to save application settings (ApplicationSettingsBase) generated by the C# project when IE is in protected mode?

I have a great little BHO that's working and running well. There are some Settings I created using the built in ApplicationSettingsBase that's generated by the project. The user can configure these settings at run-time to make the application behave differently. I've noticed with the IE in protected mode I can't call Settings.Default.Save(). It throws an access exception it seems.

I realize I can use registry or a writeable location to store settings in my own file or registry path, but I was hoping to keep the implementation clean with the built in applicationSettingsBase. Has anyone had success with this in anyway?

Thanks!

Hi Justin,

I'm afraid the answer is No (as you can see).
