Reading and Changing Text From Control Panel Settings RRS feed

  • Question

  • What I want to do is to create an application that when run will first look at a specific group of network settings in control panel and will tell me what they're set to; either my default/normal or my watching Netflix ;) settings. From there it would ask me if I want to change to the other settings or not and then if I tell it I want to change the settings to the other configuration it will go and do all that in the background (I don't want any windows opening and closing by themselves). Is this possible in VS? If not is there any other way to do this?

    I would like to try and do this myself, I just don't have the slightest clue how to access/read/change settings so if anyone could help me or steer me in the right direction towards an existing thread or guide or something that would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Brodie

    EDIT: Not sure if this thread is in the right place and also, I've only really worked with windows form applications so far, this would be a console application right?
