Post your question to a community of 468,242 developers. It's quick & easy.


I want to replace the windows login mechanism by my own mechanism i.e. fingerprint login. This system is to be deployed over a network with Windows 2000 Advanced Server as the domain controller and Windows XP and 2000 as clients. I have no experience in Windows Programming. Any suggestions regarding books or any other resources would be appreciated! :)

I want to customize msgina.dll in the following way:
1. Currently I want to follow the default SAS (Ctrl+Alt+Del) but I might change it in future.
2. My login dialog box would prompt the user to place the fingerprint the fingerprint scanner. The only input by the user is username and fingerprint...no password.
3. After that user logon data will be fetched from the Active Directory stored on the domain controller and will be matched with the live fingerprint at the client side.
4. If authenticated the user will logged on to the domain.

I want to start with GINA stub method as it sounds relatively easy. What do you think? Also how to program Active Directory. I will be using VC++ of which I have little experience.
Thanx a lot.
