Membership / log-in system for a Visual Studio project

    Question

  • I just installed Visual Studio Express 2012 for Windows Desktop.

    I want to build a desktop application that will use an SQl Server database.

    Is there a built in membership system that I can make use of? Similar to the ASP.NET membership system?

    If so how do I set it up?

    And how to I set-up which forms users have access to? Is there an equivalent to a web.config file where I can give people access to certain forms?

    Thank you for posting in the MSDN forum.

    I want to build a desktop application that will use an SQl Server database.

    I’m afraid that it is not the correct forum for this issue, to help you find the correct forum, would you mind letting us know more information about this issue? Which language are you using, VB or C# or others? Which kind for app are you developing, the WPF or the WinForms app or others? I’m afraid that you would select the specific development forum for this issue.

    Best Regards,

  • Hi TonyLoco23,

    Glad to receive your reply.

    If it is the windows Forms app, you could select the correct forum from Windows Forms, and there you would get dedicated support.
