Network Logon Override

Hi all,

What I have done is a login dialog. But now I want MY
login dialog to appear INSTEAD of the one that Win9.x/NT
is using. Both the Windows logon and the other network dialogs as well ( would be appreciated ).
My dialog will take the information and send it ( or in any
other way take care of it. ).
I have heard that this can be done by hooking
something from a DLL. But I have tried finding information
on it, but brutally failed.

If anyone can give me a small source or help so that I can
go along with my programming, the points is yours.

Thank you.

Wow, that looks like you've a lot of work to do...  :-(

If you want to replace the winNT login dialog you have to write your own "gina.dll" (or was it msgina.dll?). There are some freeware sources somewhere that do this in C(++). I heard that somebody has done this in Delphi, too. But unfortunately I don't know where to get all this stuff from...  :-(

In win95 it's a little bit easier somehow. You can adjust the windows settings in a way that no boxes appear at all. Then you can write your own program that starts up as a service and shows a little dialog. But the problem here: How to make windows login to whatever the user inputs in your dialog? I've heard about a little hack that sends these information directly to the microsoft network client. But you'll have to find out yourself, how this could be done. Look for informations about network clients...

I don't know how to replace the other dialogs.

Sorry, that's all I can tell you. I hope it helped at least a little bit...

Regards, Madshi.

Thanx Madshi,

Yes, I saw something about Gina in the MSDN library. But not
HOW to do it. I know that it is possible to hook into it.
I think even that NOVELL does somekind of own login, dont they?

Thanx for your comments anyway, everything is moste appreciated.

Don't know NOVELL.
You can probably hook into Gina. But I know that you can also replace the whole Gina.dll.

Okej,

thanx. Anyone have a source for replacing GINA.DLL then? :D..
Or perhaps have some general information that gives enough
information so I can write it myself, would be great.

Regards, Cruxis.

Check the link, I think you'll get some C(++) sources there...

Okej,

so for what the NT job is concerned I probably can do a GINA
dll. ( though I have never ported C++ code, but how hard can it be?. =)

Okej, I can be satisfied with this. Now how can I give you your points? I guess you want them. =)

Regards

Cruxis.

Hmmm. I'm posting an answer, so you can give me the points. However, I'm here if you need more help. If you've problems with converting the C(++) code, just ask. I'm no C(++) expert, but perhaps I can help.

Thank you for the points...  :-)
