XML congig files

Question

If I put two config. xml files in one folder with two different EXE's will changing one of the xml files to configuration.xml(2) still be read by the exe  it belongs to?

Not sure of the situation you are experimenting with but I would say in any situation as soon as you rename the extension of a config file the executable will no longer view it as one and just consider as another random file.

I don't believe any executable reads first the contents of a file before examining the extension.

So config.xml is read as is but config.xml(2) will be read, at best, as just a text file.
