RE: security in windows app



Hello Gerhard,

For your VB.NET windows application, does it only need to authenticate the
user through the membership/role database used by ASP.NET web application?
For Login Cotnrol, currently winform controls haven't included built-in
ones (equivalent to the ASP.NET login control). However, you can use the
ASP.NET membership & role APIs in winform application(or other non-ASP.NET
application). You only need to put the same membership & role provider
cofiguration in your winform application's app.config file.

Here is a blog article in which I've described how to do this:

#Manage database of ASP.NET 2.0 Membership & Role services in non-ASP.NET
context
http://blogs.msdn.com/msdnts/archive/2006/12/16/asp-net-2-0-membership-role-
management-out-of-asp-net-context.aspx

Hope this helps some. If you have any further questions, please feel free
to let me know.

Sincerely,

Steven Cheng
