The .NET Framework 2.0 provides custom credentials management to ASP.NET apps out of the box. Using it, you can easily authenticate users without using Windows accounts. In this article the author presents a set of helper classes that let a Windows Forms application use the ASP.NET credentials management infrastructure as easily as if it were an ASP.NET application.

Windows Management Instrumentation: Create WMI Providers to Notify Applications of System Events


Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) is based on an industry-wide standard for notifications used to manage objects and devices across a network. By receiving WMI events, an application can be notified of changes to data in WMI itself. This allows the developer to notify the consuming application that certain system configuration data has changed, without the application having to poll WMI continuously for this data. The author presents an explanation of the different types of events in WMI, then goes on to develop an event provider.

how do i create a windows form application login for to validate username and password from sql serv

 I would like to know how I can create a login form for my windows form application. The login form must be linked to a SQL server 2005 express edition database (in which the username and passwords are stored). The login form must validate the user using the database and allow them to access the program. 

I installed .net FrameWork 4.0 (for Vista/Windows 7) and my Desktop Font is BOLD! (sometimes)

So at first, I installed the below: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=9cfb2d51-5ff4-4491-b0e5-b386f32c0992&displaylang=en Which is .net framework 4 (web installer), then I believe I tried the standalone. But then after I did the Redistributable 2.0 installer for Windows XP SP2, but I have SP3, does that just mean its included already? (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=0856EACB-4362-4B0D-8EDD-AAB15C5E04F5&displaylang=en)   My friend told me I needed this before I install Office 2010... I dont know!! So after I installed these different .net frameworks and then office. I have Mozilla crashing me, I disabled the framework assistant plug-in and still happens. Then, my FONT for desktop and start menu icons turns (larger/bold) but not within folders, only what shows without clicking into anything.... so.. 1.System Restore is not an option, that restore point is overwritten now... 2. This is not an appearance tab/settings issue with a larger DPI set or anything like that... Because, sometimes I click on my computer to restart and the font is all fine and will continue to be, othertimes, some program or something causes this to happen, I restart the PC and then its fine again... Can anyone tell me what I did wrong and how to fix it, easily.. if possible :) I have searched all over and while I've noticed people with simila

How to create  custom security groups to control different  custom activities?

Can I only create session on login and redirect to login from other apps if not using custom provide


I have created custom a MembershipProvider, SessionIDManager, and SessionStateStore since I need to use custom legacy sessions and logins.. When the Application is ran, it runs the GetSessionID in the SessionIDManager(which is correct)..

The problem then is if there is no session meaning the GetSessionID method returns null, it tries to create a new session using CreateSessionID.. I want it to redirect to the login application(another application)..

We only create and store session information for logged in users and the "session id numbers" come from a file that is pre-populated with "session id numbers"(I didnt design this and its out of my control).. So its not feasable to give everyone who visits the site one of the "session id" numbers..

I also need for users with an "invalid" session(when checked through Validate()) to be redirected to the login page..


Any help here would be great..
