     Oh the horror of trying to find a way to do something so simple. Sometimes I think people try to make things more complex then they need be. NO API NO ADVAPI32.DLL NO Kernnl32.DLL no unmanaged code Pure .Net framework AD networks only "Active directory". What it does is you supply a user name and a password and see if you can get authenticated. Note Not True authentication. Ok the whole reason for this is simple. I have an Application, A) I don't want to have to worry about password and encripting them and decripting them and all that. B) The user doesn't need yet another password to remember. So as you can see I now have the pleasure to introduce this cool program. Basicly you have a list of users that can access your app. and then pop up this window to them if they check out then compare them to your list and if they are on the list boom they can run the application. Or just let anyone have access if they have network access. Hope this helps someone out.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
