The Caisis Configuration Utility is a desktop utility used to test various settings in your application. This includes managing database connection settings as well as email settings and error logging. These settings map directly to the web config file in Caisis. When the utility is launched, it will load your default web config file. You will then be able to manage the settings in your Caisis application. Please note, when values are updated in the web config, the web application may restart itself to read the new settings.

NOTE: As the Caisis Configuration writes to the web.config file, the Utility may be prompted for elevated privileges on Windows Vista/Windows 7/Windows Server 2007 based systems, or be run as an Administrator on Windows XP based systems.
