I have the following code, trying to translate a SID id into an actual NTAccount (groups).  But I get the following error trying to compile:  "Error      2      'System.Security.Principal.NTAccount' is a 'type', which is not valid in the given context      C:\Documents and Settings\jongewb\My Documents\Visual Studio 2005\Projects\SkyPayWinApp\SkyPayWinApp\User.cs      30      86      SkyPayWinApp"


IdentityReference irAccount = ir.Translate(System.Security.Principal.NTAccount)

Am I using the above wrong?

... just add "typeof"

IdentityReference irAccount = ir.Translate(typeof(System.Security.Principal.NTAccount));

Here is a pretty good article that might be of some help  http://www.pluralsight.com/wiki/default.aspx/Keith.GuideBook/HowToProgramWithSIDs.html
