Use VB app to log on to XP

Howdy all... I'm trying to setup a VB app to run as a service on an XP box and log the user in to XP. Scenario: User turns on XP box. XP comes up with standard CTRL-ALT-DEL window. VB service starts. User inserts USB keychain drive. VB app reads key file off USB drive and logs user in.

I have everything down except how to get my VB app to be able to log the user in. I don't think the LogonUser API is what I'm after.

Thanks!

if, what u want is to autenficate a user, depending on the USB device, i think u have to do a custom GINA (Graphical Identification 'N' Authentication) DLL, and u cant do it in vb.
