Call a dll function build with delphi from asp .net

Hello.

I´m migrating a software build with delphi 7 to .net winforms and asp.

There are some cryptography and authentication issues that is really hard to port from delphi to .net so I decided to build a dll with some "service" functions.

The dll functions basically connect to a sql db using ado, retrieve and write some data (tadodataset, tadocommand).

To see if the dll is fully functional, I made a simple winform with some textboxes and buttons and call all those functions. All the functions are ok.

But when I use the same dll functions into an asp solution they doesnt work.

There are no error messages but the functions always return that an exception was catch by a Try-Except block.

Finally... the questions:
- is it possible to call this kind of dll function inside an asp project?
- why the functions are ok with the win application and fails with asp?

Thanks.

asp.net normally run under aspnet use account which have very restricted access security wise where as the windows application runs under the user account who is currently logged in
you can overcome this by using impersonation following sample from Microsoft shows you how to do that

ragi0017,

the functions started to work using impersonation with my user account (the same that runs the windows test).

Thanks.
