cryptoAPI

When using SQL 2000 personal desktop (i.e MSDE) on win 98 Machine with our
VB6 application we sometimes get this error

[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]CryptoAPI function
'CryptAcquireCo ntext' failed.
Error 0x8009001d: Provider DLL failed to initialize correctly.

On Win2000/2003 XP we not get this error any one come across this before
Thanks

Hi

Probably the first of these but it does not mention Win 98

http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;321459
http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;811886

Is there a reason not to retire the Win 98 machine?

I agree with John on that - why support securing data on an insecure o/s?

I Have a .NET program sending mails using CDOEX. These mail I need to sign. I god a tip that i shoud use CAPICOM. That worked fine sending a mail with signature. BUT the problem is that I have to type the password for my certificate every time my program signs a mail :o( My program is a windows service running on a server so typing passwords is bad.

Hi, A Java application is encrypting a block of text using 3DES ECB mode and PKCS5 padding. I need to decrypt this text using C#. I've extracted the 192 bit key using the getEncoded() method of the SecretKey Java class. However when I use this key in .NET i cannot decrypt the cipher text. I am pretty sure that all my settings are correct, as far as setting the ECB mode, PKCS5 padding and converting the cipher text to byte

Hi i have a question regarding the CryptoAPI. I can seemingly call CryptAcquireContext, and if I pass any random string as the key container name and NULL as the provider name, with CRYPT_NEWKEYSET as the last parameter, then the rest of the crypt functions seem to work. But I came across an instance when I stopped debugging the program, before I had called CryptReleaseContext, and when I ran the program again, I got FALSE returned, and...

This is a very weird problem, when I boot my IIS server I get a CryptoAPI cryptographic service provider (CSP) for this implementation could not be acquired exception. However, once I access my site within the server, the exception goes away. My ASP page only displays the logon user (only 2 lines of code). I don't understand this behavior at all.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers. The idea...
