Windows 7 Security and .Net Framework

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 25, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework



I'm developing an application using .Net Framework 2.0...

In my application, I require to create a file to in C:\Windows folder and need to store some settings in registry (Read/Write Registry Both Operations)


I'm an administrator user but still I don't have rights to create folder from the application. Application throws "Access Denied" exception while creating a file/write data in registry. I only have rights to read file/read registry data.

My application works perfectly when I run that application as an administrator.


But every time end user can't run my application as an administrator.

So my problem is : 

Is there a problem with windows 7 or .net framework has feature to bypass this security check and allow my application to create file/write data to registry.


I surf an internet a lot... but I didn't get proper solution...

Security Update for .Net Framework 3.5.1 on Windows 7x86(KB244709) Failed


A security update was pushed out on our network a couple of weeks ago, but one user is getting this error.

I checked that the user is running Windows 7 32 bit.

I attempted to manually install the download from the microsoft page: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=157aa425-953c-4fc9-ab76-4e65d4be8baa&displaylang=en (making sure that I chose the Windows6.1-KB2446709-x86.msu version

I tried running the .msu download, still failed

I tried saving the .msu download to C:\224709 and running the installation from the command line with the following commands

  • expand -f:* "C:\224709\Windows6.1-KB224709-x86.msu" %TEMP%
  • pkgmgr.exe /n:%TEMP%\Windows6.1-KB244709-X86.xml

When I ran the above pkrmgr.exe command an error message popped up saying "Operation Failed: The Component Store has been corrupted"

Just to see if it would still install from the command line anyway I tried the following on the command line

  • wusa.exe C:\224709\Windows6.1-KB224709-x86.msu

Windows installer windows pops up and it begins the installation, but fails part way through and comes up with the same error "Security Update for .N

Intranet Users Challenged When Using Windows Integrated Security


We've setup an intranet site using Windows Integrated Security. Its up and running and users can access it. However, they are being challenged with a login dialog for the server when they initially access the site.

Isn't is possible to configure the server so that the users aren't challenged AND are recognized as being already authenticated by Windows? We're trying to go with a seamless experience, whereby all they have to do is login to their machine like normal and then go from there.

Are You in the Know?: Find Out What's New with Code Access Security in the .NET Framework 2.0


Unlike role-based security measures, code access security is not based on user identity. Instead, it is based on the identity of the code that is running, including information such as where the code came from. Here Mike Downen discusses the role of code access security (CAS) in .NET and outlines some key new features and changes in CAS for the .NET Framework 2.0.
