The CrmSvcUtil.exe.config configuration file must be in the same folder as the CrmSvcUtil.exe tool.

If you enter a value at the command line, that value will be used instead of the one in the configuration file. 

Do not include the url and namespace parameters in the configuration file. These must be entered from the command line when the CrmSvcUtil.exe tool is being run.

<appSettings> <add key="o" value="CrmProxy.cs"/> <add key="d" value="mydomain"/></appSettings>
