Rights Managed Content Viewer Sample
The Rights Managed Content Viewer sample shows how to access a file that is encrypted with Digital Rights Management (DRM) protection. Compile the sample and follow the step below to view the example protected image files "Chocolate.png.protected" or "Truffle.png.protected". (The encrypted example files are created from the Rights Managed Content Publish Sample.)
After the sample starts, click File | Open... and select to view one of the example files, "Chocolate.png.protected" or "Truffle.png.protected". If the current user logged in to the system has been granted rights bound within the encrypted file, the image will open and display within the Image pane.
In addition to the Image pane, two additional panels displayed within the application window.
The "Status" pane displays each step as it is performed to access the protected content.
The "Rights" pane shows the bound rights within the protected document that are granted to the user.
Important: Execution of the Rights Managed Content Viewer sample requires network access to a server configured with Microsoft Rights Management Services (RMS). See the following links for information on how to configure your development environment for use with RMS.
