Credential Provider, CredUI, Secure Desktop and custom Dialog RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello!

    I created my own credential provider. In LogonUI, it displays a custom dialog to the user
    so that he can enter his credentials.

    I want to reuse that dialog in CredUI scenarios (that is, UAC prompts). But...
    When the UAC secure desktop is enabled, my dialog does not show up!!!
    I know that there are some restrictions with what can be done when in the secure desktop,
    but there must be a way to display that dialog, even when Secure Desktop is enabled?

    Can a digital signature + manifest help here? Do we need to register the Credential Provider as a
    trusted application somewhere? There must be a way to do this.

    Please help!
