Overriding FIPS Policy in ASP.NET

    I was getting an error about the encryption not conforming the FIPS
    policy. And I found a nice article from MS on how to override the
    encryption default in my ASP.NET application (using a web.config
    setting) to use an encryption algorithm (like 3DES) that was FIPS
    compliant. Problem is that didn't work I still get the error and the
    only way to stop it is to turn off FIPS policy in the registry. This is
    not an acceptable solution. Why doesn't setting the encryption
    algorithm in web.config not work?


    Thx.
