    I have forms authentication for the ASP.NET application I'm currently
    writing. It worked fine until I installed today's patch for Windows XP (we
    can't go to SP2 yet for various reasons), VS.NET 2003, .NET Framework 1.1...
    These were all patches that I ran. Now, my forms authentication which had
    been running fine up until then doesn't seem to work. I log in through my
    login form, and it doesn't do the
    FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage(user_name, true) any more. I added
    a hardcoded address to redirect to my homepage:
    FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage(user_name, true, homepage) and it
    goes to the home page, but every time I click on something, it goes back to
    the login page. Anyone seen this? Does anyone have any suggestions? I
    guess there is always the possibility of backing out of the patch, but I want
    to make sure that I don't run into this when deploying to my Windows Server
    2003 because of a messed up config somewhere.

    I played with the IIS settings until I got it to work. Apparently SP2
    changes some IIS defaults. I set debugging back to true and I may have
    changed the pooling to medium. Also, it didn't seem to work until I rebooted
    after making these changes, but stopping and restarting may have achieved the
    same effect.
