Active Directory password reset in

I have a web page through this page when I try to add a new user then users created successfully but when try resetting their password then I am getting errors

add New user successfully

public static void AddUser(ADUser adUser)
// Local variables
DirectoryEntry oDE = null;
DirectoryEntry oDENewUser = null;
DirectoryEntries oDEs = null;

oDE = GetDirectoryEntry(GetADPath(PROD, adUser.UserType));

// 1. Create user account
oDEs = oDE.Children;
oDENewUser = oDEs.Add("CN=" + adUser.UserName, "user");

// 2. Set properties
SetProperty(oDENewUser, "givenName", adUser.FirstName);
SetProperty(oDENewUser, "sn", adUser.LastName);
SetProperty(oDENewUser, "mail", adUser.Email);
SetProperty(oDENewUser, "sAMAccountName", adUser.UserName);

/// 4. Enable account

// 3. Set password
//SetPassword(oDENewUser, adUser.Password);
SetPassword1(oDENewUser.Path, adUser.Password);

catch (Exception ex)
throw ex;
I have try the following 2 SetPassword methods but getting error.
Method 1.
internal static void SetPassword1(string path, string userPassword)
//Local variables
DirectoryEntry usr = null;

usr = new DirectoryEntry();
usr.Path = path;
usr.AuthenticationType = AuthenticationTypes.Secure;
object ret = usr.Invoke("SetPassword", userPassword);
catch (Exception ex)
throw ex;
The exception raised (Error Code 80072035: The server is unwilling to process the request)
Method 2.
internal static void SetPassword(DirectoryEntry de, string userPassword)
//Local variables
//DirectoryEntry usr = null;
string quotePwd;
byte[] pwdBin;

quotePwd = String.Format(@"""{0}""", userPassword);
pwdBin = System.Text.Encoding.Unicode.GetBytes(quotePwd);
de.Properties["unicodePwd"].Value = pwdBin;
catch (Exception ex)
throw ex;
The exception raised ("Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation.")
Is there an easy way to tell if there is a problem with changing a password
Please reply me as soon as possible.

[2005] Creating Interactive Online Demo   (176 Views)
Everyone, I am currently building a new website for my company and I would like to include an online demo of our main application. The application itself controls a SQL database in the background. I know I could create a flash demo and just play the movie online but I would like it to be as interactive as possible. I would also like to stay away from people downloading and installing a trial version. Basically what I have in mind is to have both the application and the background DB run on the webserver. Does anyone know the best way to do this The application itself is built for the windows platform not IE or the like. Could I just import some of the forms from my application into my website Or would I need to change all the buttons to server-side controls I have tried searching the forums and google to see if there are any tutorials but I couldn't find any. Any guidance would be appreciated.

Re: Newbie Advice: UserInteractive mode   (253 Views)
Hi , I am new to ASP.NET making the move over from windows forms development. In Windows forms I used to throw an error to a windows form or a message box when I wanted to alert the user about something i.e. invalid password on login. I would like to know if it is better to place the application into "UserInteractive mode" and use standard dialog boxes or should i be creating pages to report such things. Any applications I produce will be restricted to the local Intranet. Any advice appreciated.

signing an activex control   (199 Views)
Created an activex control to send outlook tasks from an web page. I noticed when the active x component gets initialized on the page I get that IE message, about whether to accept the activex or not (part of the security). I think you can modify the IE options to drop this message.... BUT I do not want to do that, so I read more and read that you can sign an active x component. This activex component was written in VB6. The page is / This activex sits on this page. How do I sign this activex component so that our current staff does not receive this message

Get value from active x to textbox in webform.   (311 Views)
drydo Littlethorpe, Leicestershire Since 9/2/2002 Posts 8,852 Reputation 59,225 Reply drydo (drydo) replied on 9/5/2008 2:22 AM rated by 0 users OK - I zero experience of creating a custom ActiveX control, but...By creating a property in your control, the IComInterface should allow you to expose that properties to the client-side code in your web page.And by client-side code, I mean Javascript. What Javascript does from that point, e.g. does it poll the ActiveX control checking the entry in order to write it across - that's pretty much up to you.

Interactive web with mail   (182 Views)
has anyone ever developed an interactive web application where forms are filled and passed from one person to another for approval My intended web application should have a requestor fill in an application and submits to management for approval. There would be several people involved in the approval so the application would go through a cycle. How the approver would know is a note with a link to let them know that there is an application awaiting their approval. The question now is, is it possible to get this done because I have never done something like this before but am intending to. ANy ideas or comments are welcome
setting the header in a datalist with repeatcolumns active   (470 Views)
Hi all. Here's what I'm trying to do: I'm generating a report using a datalist. Since each piece of info isn't big, I've set the RepeatColumns=3. So my data on the page looks like: Model1 Type1 Number1 Model3 Type3 Number3 Model5 Type5 Number5 Model2 Type2 Number2 Model4 Type4 Number4 Model6 Type6 Number6 In the HeaderTemplate, I can manually create a static header that has "Model Type Number" over each of the Columns but this has limitations (like if there are only 2 items in the dataset instead of 3 or more). Also, the static alignment is not what I really want. My question: Is there a way (maybe in the ItemCreated event where ListItemType = Footer) to dynamically set up the header so that each column gets a "Model Type Number" in alignment with the column

Interacting with active directory   (186 Views)
I have been given a new project which has introduced a lot of new subjects to me. I have to make a .net web page that will sit on our company local server, users will connect to it through a desktop icon. The page has no UI, it just needs to query AD to find out who the logged in uer is, pull their email address, and name. Then it will redirect them to a new URL. I can do the second part (redirect) but I have never had to query AD through ASP/C# before. I am looking for some online tutorials on how to do this, any suggestions

.NET 2.0: Multiview - How to determine active view   (188 Views)
It seems that this should be easy, but I am stumped.Given:Code: [stuff] [stuff] [stuff] and also given some buttons (or other controls) that make calls such as:Code:mv.SetActiveView(V1)What must be done to determine the current active view The reason I ask is this: When certain views are not active, there is no reaosn to perform calculations on controls that are not visible. What I would like, ideally, is something like this:Code:Select Case mv.ActiveViewName Case "V1" Case "V2" Case "V3"End CaseCan you please suggest a means to achieve thisThank you.
