Gina dll, profile type in WlxLoggedOutSAS

I am writing a stub gina dll so that I may provide automated
policies/profiles with information gathered from an authenticated connection with my network provider, vice using domains/controllers. This DLL is being written to support both NT3.5x and 4.0 by runtime checking the version of OS and winlogon, and loading the correct winlogon fuction dispatch tables and hooking the version 2 additional gina (4.0 only )functions if neccessary.

My question is, WlxLoggedOutSAS returns with a profile structure, either WLX_PROFILE_V1_0 or V2_0.  I would like to use the 2.0 structure in both NT versions, because there are members in 2.0 for UNC paths to default user profile, current user profile, and current user policy.  1.0 only has 1 member, the policy.  I can't find any documentation that tells me if 2.0 is only for NT4.0, in fact, I wouldn't have known about it at all if I didn't look at winwlx.h.

Is 2.0 only for NT4.x, or is it based on the winlogon version you are running with, being 1.0 or 1.1?

Thanks a lot for any help.

The WLX_PROFILE struct never leaves Winlogon. Winlogon simply uses the WLX_PROFILE struct to set up the users profile, and then discards the information.

Thus, the version depends on the version of Winlogon, not NT.

The possible pitfall here might be that WInlogon assumes NT 4.0 if a 2.0 WLX_PROFILE struct is returned, but that would be to stupid even for MS ;)

Have you considered the possibility of loading profiles yourself? A bit work, but it'll give you the control of the profiles which you seem to wish.
