  • Hi,

    You can only change the "icon", not the background which is hardcoded.

    The "icon" is available only for Credential Provider v1 (look for the Windows 8 changes where the icon represents the user and which is set by logonui).

    To change the Icon, you have to re-enumerate the credentials using the ICredentialProviderEvents object returned by ICredentialProvider::Advise.

    regards,
