.Net licensing with Registry

1- You must use your LicenseProvider on the top of your control class like:
[LicenseProvider(typeof(MYLicenseProvider))]
2- You must check the validation of License in constractor's control class by
LicenseManager.Validate(typeof(MYControl), this);
3- You must define you specified MYLicenseProvider and override GetLicense function and read something from registry and return a valid instance of "Licence".

PS: The promise is that you define your License class and return one object of that
public class MYLicense : License {...}
PS: Another application can fill up registry for use by this control

.Net Licensing with LIC file

Microsoft solution for Control .Net Licensing (that we call FILE LICENSING)
1- You must use the
[LicenseProvider(typeof(LicFileLicenseProvider))]
on the top of your control class
2- You must check the validation of License in constructor’s control class by
LicenseManager.Validate(typeof(MYControl), this);
3- To run the application, you must use one file (with below spec.) near the executable (or dll) control.
FileName: [MYControlNamespace].[MYControlClassname].lic
Content: [MYControlNamespace].[MYControlClassname] is a licensed component.

This is the most simple microsoft solution, that can be advance!

.Net Licensing

Step by Step with .Net Licensing (for Control or Form)
If you wanna build a control (that we called NewControl) and use the .Net Licensing for that, go ahead:

1-The licensed control requests a license from the LicenseManager in its constructor.
[PS1: LicenseManager is a sealed (not inheritable) class for provides usefull properties and methods for connecting to a LicenseProvider]
license = LicenseManager.Validate(typeof(NewControl), this);
2- The our LicenseManager rerequests a licence from the LicenseProvider with GetLicense().
[PS2:We can define our LicenseProvider at the top of our class's control (that we called NewLicenseProvider)]
[LicenseProvider(typeof(NewLicenseProvider))]
public class NewControl : System.Windows.Forms.Control{ ...}
3- We must declare a NewLicenseProvider of System.ComponentModel.LicenseProvider and override the GetLicense like :public
override License GetLicense(LicenseContext context, Type type, object instance, bool allowExceptions)

We want to talk more about this ...
If you have a problem on this field .. come on ... post a comment

if you have NDDEN.EXE (c:\WINDOWS\NDDEN.exe) then you have a Persian Virus.

CheckSchemaVersion Error

Error: Could not find stored procedure 'dbo.aspnet_CheckSchemaVersion'
Error: Could not find stored procedure 'spGroupSelect'
Error: I enter the username and password and then click on submit in the Login page, I receive the Could not find stored procedure 'dbo.aspnet_CheckSchemaVersion'

OK, wellcome, Be happy and don't worry ...
This is a security problem that comes from the connectionStrings in web.config
I know that your web.config file is OK but look at again ...
You must add Integrated Security=True;User Instance=True to your connectionString
If your connection string is the same as bellow
connectionString="data source='xxxxxx.com,1234';User ID='xxxxxx';Password=xxxxxx;database='xxxxxx'"
change it to
connectionString="data source='xxxxxx.com,1234';User ID='xxxxxx';Password=xxxxxx;database='xxxxxx';Integrated Security=True;User Instance=True"
Just this ...
This works for our ASP.NET 2.0 project on Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Beta 2.0.
If you find another way, Don't be hesitate, paste it here
