Why does opening SDE Workspace Factory ask for credentials again?

I'm trying to open SDE Workspace Factory using IWorkspaceFactory.Open

I give the complete Property set in the code to open.


ESRI.ArcGIS.esriSystem.IPropertySet propertySet = new ESRI.ArcGIS.esriSystem.PropertySetClass();
propertySet.SetProperty("SERVER", "myServer");
propertySet.SetProperty("INSTANCE", "myinstance");
propertySet.SetProperty("AUTHENTICATION_MODE", "DBMS");
propertySet.SetProperty("DATABASE", "myDatabase");
propertySet.SetProperty("USER", "sde");
propertySet.SetProperty("PASSWORD", "sdePassword");
propertySet.SetProperty("VERSION", "sde.DEFAUALT");

IWorkspaceFactory workspaceFactory = new ESRI.ArcGIS.DataSourcesGDB.SdeWorkspaceFactory();
IWorkspace workspace = workspaceFactory.Open(propertySet,0);

But When the workspaceFactory.Open is called, a dialogue box is opened to ask for credentials again.


Why does this happen?

Also, Can someone tell me what does the second parameter of IWorkspaceFactory.Open "hWnd" represent? I couldnt find a proper explanation in the documentation.
