I've written a new MSGINA.DLL and one thing is not working correctly. The drive that is specified in the home directory of the user is mounted but I've an error from Winlogon after the connection. I use the WNetAddConnection function. Is it good ? Is there another solution to mount drives ? etc...

Don't you think this question will get better responses if posted in the "Windows" programming area?  After all, there is absolutely no C++ involved...

I'd suggest using 'WNetAddConnection2()' instead, as it offers more fexibility...

Do you impersonate your process before mounting the drive ?
Here is some code I use in my GINA :

// Impersonation
bRes = ImpersonateLoggedOnUser(hUserToken) ;

nr.lpLocalName = szHomeDirDrive ;
nr.lpRemoteName = szHomeDir ;
nr.lpProvider = NULL ;
dwRes = WNetAddConnection2(&nr,lpszPassword,lpszUserName,0) ;

// Cancel Impersonation
RevertToSelf() ;
