Security Permissions with embedded Winforms App


G

Guest

I've got a .net 2.0 winforms app that is embedded in an IE page. When I try
to move this to a Windows server 2003 machine with IIS 6 I get a security
exception:

System.IO.FileLoadException: Could not load file or assembly xxxxxxx.Common,
Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null' or one of its
dependencies. Failed to grant minimum permission requests. (Exception from
HRESULT: 0x80131417)

I've seen this out there in the forums, but I've got a machine policy that
gives fulltrust to all code from the location it gets the DLL from. If I use
the Framework 2.0 Configuration utility to evaluate the assembly it says that
it is "unrestricted".

There might be some classes in the xxxxx.Common dll that have unsafe code.
Could that have something to do with it? I have no declarative security
attributes. THis is configured so that the code would be downloaded into the
download cache and executed from there. Any ideas?

Thanks.

Hi,

Thank you for posting.

Could you tell me what assemblies does the xxx.Common dll has refered to?

You may have a try adding the website's the URL to the trusted sites list.

To do this, open the Control Panel and double-click the Internet Options
item in it. In the Internet Properties window, select Security tab and then
Trusted sites item in the tab. Click the Sites button and input the
website's URL in the dialog.

Hope this helps.


Sincerely,
Linda Liu

Log4net (Opensource logging system)

Atalasoft.dotImage.Lib
Atalasoft.Shared

If you are talking about the trusted sites list on my client PC, then it is
already in that zone. I have also modified the .net security policy on the
client PC to allow fulltrust to all code coming from the webserver that is
hosting the page with the embedded dlls.

This configuration all worked fine using my local PC as the webserver (Win
xp with IIS 5.1) but fails to work when moved to Win Server 2003 with IIS 6.0.

Hi Jeremy,

Thanks for your update.

I notice that xxx.Common refers to some third party assemblies, such as
Log4net, Spring.AOP, Spring.Core and so on.

Have you added those third party assemblies xxx.Common refers to in the GAC
on your client PC? If not, I think you may have a try adding these
assemlies in the GAC on your client PC.

Hope this helps.
