Microsoft.NET/Framework/<versionNumber>/CONFIG directories

    The TK 70-562 book discusses how the hierarchy of configuration files can
    contribute and override settings in a web application. I would like to
    understand how the "versionNumber" for the CONFIG directory path is chosen.
    For example, there are no v3.5/CONFIG or v3.0/CONFIG directories.

    How does .NET 3.5 know to find the Machine.config and Web.config under the
    v2.0.50727\CONFIG directory? Is this hard coded within the Framework
    distribution itself? Also, does .NET also look hierarchically through
    v1.0\CONFIG and v1.1\CONFIG directories, or does it stop at the first (most
    recent Framework version) CONFIG directory that is found?

    Thanks.
