Windows CardSpace Samples
These samples demonstrate how to use CardSpace. These samples are intended for instructional use only. As such, these samples exhibit limited error handling.
Before you install the Windows CardSpace samples:
The CardSpace samples require service accounts to have read and write permissions to the directories where the files are unpacked. Due to this requirement, it is recommended that all the CardSpace samples are unpacked into a directory off of the root directory, (for example, c:\samples).
The samples use scripts to modify Internet Information Services (IIS) virtual directories and register certificates to demonstrate certain features. All the samples should be run from the Windows SDK command shell. Additionally, the usage of these scripts requires the use of an Administrator account. Under Windows Vista, you may have to create a shortcut to the SDK Command Prompt, and use run as administrator if you have User Account Control turned on.
You should not use the certificates provided with these samples on a production machine, as they are generated for demonstration purposes only.
