    Thanx for the Video on how to add Custom attributes to AppHostConfig. I'm using Microsoft.Web.Adminstration 7.0 to read all the Web Services used by the Site. For this, I need to read the system.serviceModel/endpoint/client tag in the web.config of the Site. I'm facing problem in this and need your help...
    My approach is
    Configuration webConfig = site.GetWebConfiguration();
    The error message : system.serviceModel cannot be read because it is not in schema.
    I cannot add a new custom schema file because it's a Production Server.
    Also, system.serviceModel is not a custom tag
    Using this approach, I can read all ConnectionStrings and AppSettings of the Site.
