Hi

Dazed & Confused is a great film. I take it from your name you're a pothead
thinking you are sitting on the half way line of a football frield at night.

About your question: The data protection API is on the MSDN site & there
used to be a few examples in the VB.NET Knowledge Base site. I have also
seen something in the MSDN magazine, but cannot remember which issue last
year & therefore cannot point you to the right issue for you to download the
code - sorry

Actually I didn't know there was a movie, maybe I should check it out, there
maybe a slander suite in it... sounds like me.

I found what I think is a good example at
http://msdn.microsoft.com/msdnmag/is...n/default.aspx

but it is in C#. I found another example in VB .NET (not exactly the same),
the C# example passes a byte array to the encrypt class, the VB passes a
string. I think with the VB example I have what I want, but.... I want mine
to also use byte, so I am trying to convert the C# to VB, not so much fun, I
am just getting more Dazed and Confused....

I have also found a simple C# code snippet which is very simple to convert
to VB.NET:
