I am following the above article to implement DPAPI User Store to
store Credit Card Info in my database.

I am doing exactly what the article says. I can encrypt and decrypt
from the same machine but not from different machines…. What I have
read is that if I have a roaming or a domain based user profile, I am
able to do that. I have created a domain account that my win services
on both machines and my COM+ compoenents also on both machines uses.
Still no cigar.

Any ideas?
