.net 2.0 security configuration
Are there some help resources, or can anyone give me a brief Idea how I would configure the .net 2 runtime security policies for the following scenario:
I have a windows forms control hosted in IE. The control tries to read from a serial port and write to the event log. Both of these operations fail due to security restrictions in the browser:
Request for the permission of type 'System.Security.Permissions.SecurityPermission,mscorlib, Version=220.127.116.11, Culture=neutral,PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089 failed.
Request for the permission of type 'System.Diagnostics.EventLogPermission,System, Version=18.104.22.168, Culture=neutral,PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089 failed.
I've set my site to be fully trusted by adding it to the list of fully trusted sites in IE, but I still have the problem. I am pretty sure the answer isin the runtime security policies in the .net 2.0 configuration but I just don't know what to change.
Try the following:
Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Configuration
Expand out and select:
.Net Framework 2.0 Configuration -> MyComputer -> Runtime Security Policy -> Machine -> Code Groups -> All_Code
Under that there are the different zones. I'm not sure which one would apply to IE and your scenario, but try the following on each of them (remember to set them back after testing)
Right click on the "??????_Zone" Select the "Permission Set" Tab Change the "Permission Set" combo to "Full Trust"
The "Membership Permission" tab may also lend some clues to which one is correct.
