Start c# program before windows logon
Posted on 2010-11-29
Hello Fellow Experts!
I have written a program in C# which requires user interaction before the logon process is initiated. I have successfully added a service to invoke the program, but this only works after the user has logged in.
I have a laptop provided by one of my clients where a dialogue box appears stright after the user hits CTRL+ALT+DELETE and after clicking OK, the dialogue box disappears and the windows logon box appears, so I know it is possible. (there is no secondary desktop, it is just a dialogue box.)
I realise there is something called GINA which can be manipulated, but I wish to avoid this if I can, unless someone can provide me with a working example to manipulate the process after the CTRL+ALT+DELETE function.
Thanks for the help!
