Rights Managed Package Publish Sample

The Rights Managed Package Publish sample shows how to add Digital Rights Management (DRM) protection to an XML Paper Specification (XPS) document or content contained within a Package. The sample shows how rights management protection is added to an example document, "Document.xps". Build the sample and follow the steps below to add rights managed protection to an XML Paper Specification (XPS) document.

  1. After the sample starts, click File | Open... and select to view "Document.xps". Document.xps will open and display in the DocumentViewer pane.

  2. Next click File | Rights... and select the file "Document-Rights.xrml". The Extensible Rights Markup Language (XrML) file defines the rights to be granted to specific users of the protected document after it is encrypted for rights management.

  3. To publish the rights managed document, click File | Publish... and in the "Publish Rights Managed Package As" dialog select a file name for the new encrypted document.

In addition to the DocumentViewer pane, there are two additional panels displayed in the application window.

  • The "Status" pane displays the steps as they are performed to encrypt the document with rights management.

  • The "Rights" pane shows the contents of the "Document-Rights.xrml" file that defines the granted rights bound with the managed document.

The Rights Managed Package Viewer Sample shows how to access and view the new rights managed file.

Important: Execution of the Rights Managed Package Publish 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.
