XenDesktop 7.x, Proprietary Credential Provider, getting the Session's User Name

Danny Tabak




I'm creating a Win10 Credential Provider that needs to run in a XenDesktop 7.x VM.

In order to ease the CP user flow, I would like to retrieve the StoreFront current session's User Name.

Is it possible? If so, What SDK should I use?


Thanks in Advance

Please go through this article, I hope this might answer to your query.





Many thanks for your answer;

I have Downloaded the HdxCredentialSelectorSdk.

I see in the HdxCredentialSelectorCPPSDK the following API:


HRESULT LoginUser::PerformSmartcardLogon(

    PWSTR username,

    PWSTR pin, …


How should I configure StoreFront and Use the HdxCredentialSelector in order to get Called to this Function?

All I need is the username, and the pin,


But note that at point of User Authenticating at StoreFront there is No Card (virtual) Present within the VM (and not locally on Client  Physical machine).


Thanks again for the directions.
