I checked and I don't have that demo saved anywhere, but I did have the original "full" demonstration application that I took the smaller demos for the screencast from. For those who are interested, it will be on
http://www.federaldeveloper.com on the left hand navigation under presentations, under Robert Shelton.
Again, in the future, I will save the demo code and posted it with a link within the Screencast description form.
I'm not sure if I fully understand your question, but I would say this: Since the Web.config is a server-based file, the user shouldn't see anything in the way of errors. In fact, what you have to do, is when you get to the server(s) that you are going
to run the web application on, you would encrypt the file at that server(s), so that the key was stored on that server.
Good feedback, flabbergasted...I will check to see if I still have the sample code and if so, I will post the code in the presentation section (left navigation) of
http://www.federaldeveloper.com. Going forward, I will make this a part of my process, to make it easier for everyone.
Again, thanks for stating the obvious. Sometimes the obvious, isn't so obvious!
David, as funny as it sounds, I am a Visual Basic developer as well, but I've started doing demonstration code in C# to learn that language as well. I don't currently have this in VB.NET, but if there is a lot of interest around a VB port, I will happily
port the code and place it on the http://www.federaldeveloper.com site.
Currently I am working on some web cast for Windows Communication Foundation, otherwise, I would just do it now. After I finish those, I will look at porting all of my screencast to both VB and C#. This way, no one gets left out and it's easier for me, since
it is more natural for me to read/write in VB.
