How to store custom application settings globally?

Hi,

 

For my ArcGIS Pro configuration where I strip down the application, there is a need to store my custom application settings. But I do not want to store it in a project (as these settings are needed right before loading a project, I need them in the startup page) and I do not want to store it for each user (because the application should use the settings the same way for each user).

In the documentation I could only find described the way to store project settings and user settings, but no way to store application settings. In my opinion, this is a gap.

I even tried to use the app.config in my Visual Studio Project, but I the values are only stored while runtime, when relaunching the appilication, I get the default settings.

 

What is your recommendation for storing settings in a global context when using a configuration?

 

Kind regards,

Max
