Conversion of Credential Provider to Windows 8 does not work RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a working Windows 7 Logon Credential Provider that works well on Windows 8.  I recently modified the code using the Credential Provider Framework Changes in Windows 8 document.  After placing my DLLs onto the test system and locking or rebooting, the LogonUI does not even start, the screen flashes black then blue then repeats.  I have used remote debugging for the win7 version of the CP, but the debugger (VS2013) is unable to connect to the LogonUI process when the new CP is in the system.  Where can I get a sample password Credential Provider for Windows 8.  It is unbelievable that Microsoft will not release sample code even a year after release of the OS.  Why does Microsoft make everything hard for their developers?
