Before We Begin
At this point, it is expected that the .Net Framework is installed and configured for ASP.Net applications. It is also expected that you have a web.config file already created in your web project. If not, copy the "default" web.config file below into notepad and save in the root of your web project as web.config.

Title: The problems I had

First, sorry if I mix up the first and second part of the article but here goes:

You're capturing the return of SelectSingleNode() in an XmlAttribute and that didn't work for me. It said it needed a NodeSet. I fixed this by capturing it with an XmlNode and working with its Attributes collection.

The other problem I had was that your XPath didn't capture the node for me so I had to use this:
"descendant::appSettings/add[@key='conServer']"

I wish you'd let me know what isn't working. This way I can provide some "troubleshooting" for you.

This article's basic concept of trying to modify the web.config is great, unfortunately the code doesn't work for me. Maybe you should try and write some troubleshooting for this.
