Card Selector Stops loading RRS feed

  • Question




    I my card selector has suddenly stopped loading with the following error in the event log of the client machine (error appears twice for each failure):


    An error occurred when communicating with the Windows CardSpace service. Validation of the caller's identity failed.



    additional Information:

    at System.Environment.GetStackTrace(Exception e, Boolean needFileInfo)

    at System.Environment.get_StackTrace()

    at Microsoft.InfoCards.Diagnostics.InfoCardTrace.BuildMessage(InfoCardBaseException ie)

    at Microsoft.InfoCards.Diagnostics.InfoCardTrace.TraceAndLogException(Exception e)

    at Microsoft.InfoCards.Diagnostics.InfoCardTrace.ThrowHelperError(Exception e)

    at Microsoft.InfoCards.ClientRequest.Authorize(IntPtr rpcIfHandle, IntPtr context)


    The first time it happened a reboot made it go away. Now it seems to be back to stay. Has anyone else had similar problem or any suggestions where to look?


     I couldnt find anything searching the forum or on google

  • This error usually means that someone's touched the CardSpace binaries and the signatured that signed the binaries aren't valid anymore.

    Have you tried reinstalling .NET Framework 3.0?

    I tried a repair on the framework but that didnt sort it out. Its a development machine and I am actively developing a cardspace solution but I dont think I have done anything (intentionally) with the cardspace binaries. Is there a way I can check this? Also, the error intially dispeared after a reboot and the test application started working agin?
