Namespace:  System.Security.Principal
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public void Undo()

ExceptionCondition
SecurityException

An attempt is made to use this method for any purpose other than to revert identity to self.

Notes to Implementers:

Because Microsoft Windows 98 and Windows Millennium Edition platforms do not have users or user tokens, impersonation cannot take place on those platforms.

The following example shows how to impersonate a Windows identity using a specified user token.

WindowsImpersonationContext ImpersonationCtx = WindowsIdentity.Impersonate(userToken); 
//Do something under the context of the impersonated user.
 ImpersonationCtx.Undo();

Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP SP2, Windows XP Media Center Edition, Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, Windows XP Starter Edition, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2000 SP4, Windows Millennium Edition, Windows 98
