Local Machine Environment

Does this component work with a machine using local machine accounts. I am trying to test this on the Microsoft development vpc. I cant get it to work. I do not know how to setup the connection string.
Machine Name: SPVM
Machine Domain: Workgroup

Hi epoul,

Unfortunately this component requires Active Directory when using Integrated Windows Authentication or the Active Directory Membership provider. 
It will not work with local machine accounts unless you implement a custom membership provider to do exactly that. I have not heard of an implementation like this.

Microsoft also has a virtual machine available with SharePoint Server 2007 and Active Directory. You can find it here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=67f93dcb-ada8-4db5-a47b-df17e14b2c74&DisplayLang=en
