How do Credential Providers get used during Reduced Functionality Mode? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    The behavior of reduced functionality mode in Windows Vista


    I'm wondering how Credential Providers are invoked when only a Reduced Functionality Mode logon is available to the user.

    Are custom providers invoked, or will only Microsoft default providers work? 

    If custom providers are invoked, are they in any way restricted in terms of what they can do (e.g. access to biometric devices or smart cards, etc.)?

  • Since you need to be logged on to activate, CP functionality is available regardless of RFM.
