Astoria for Silverlight with Forms authentication RRS feed

  • Question

  • This is one of the most astounding combinations of technology I've ever see on the web so far, and it works so well and seamlessly.


    Using Visual Studio to assemble my database, web portal, and RIA has been an absolute joy, and it works so well.


    Right up until I swapped the <authentication mode> from Windows to Forms.  I'm new enough to this that despite the googling I'm not sure what I can do to allow the framework to get the information that it's losing by changing the authentication mode.

    I've searched this forum, the silverlight.net one and the asp.net one and haven't found a solution to this problem aside from this page.




    Which sounds perfect, but just doesn't work, and I'm not sure why.

    If anyone has any solution to this problem. I'd be firmly in your debt.


    Thanks in advance to anyone who has the time to try to help.

  • Yah.  this is a bug.  We found the same thing a few weeks ago.  Unfortunately there probably isn't a work around for now except to use another authetication mode.
