Developer audience

The MS-CHAP Password Management API was created for use by C/C++ programmers. Familiarity with Windows network programming and RAS is assumed.

Run-time requirements

The MS-CHAP Password Management API requires a server running Windows Server 2003 or Windows Server 2008. For more specific information about which operating systems support a particular programming element, refer to the Requirements sections in the documentation.
