Rights Managed Package Viewer Sample

The Rights Managed Package Viewer sample shows how to open an XML Paper Specification (XPS) document or Package encrypted with Digital Rights Management (DRM) protection. Compile the sample and follow the step below to view the example protected file "Document-RmEncrypted.xps". (The encrypted example file is created from the Rights Managed Package Publish Sample.)

  1. After the sample starts, click File | Open... and select to view "Document-RmEncrypted.xps". If the current user logged in to the system has been granted rights bound within the document, the document will open and display within the DocumentViewer pane.

In addition to the DocumentViewer 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 Package 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.
