ESRI delivers a sample ASP.NET provider for security here:

C:\Program Files\ArcGIS\Server\help\samples\asp.net\in_memory_provider

I built this, installed the resulting DLL in the GAC, and then tested the result using the JSON in the Readme.txt file using this URL:


It works fine.  No problems.

I then modified the project to use the .NET 4.0 framework and repeated the above steps.  It does not work.  I can run fuslogvw and see that it fails to load the assembly.  The failure occurs in conjunction with ArcSOC.exe.  Is there a way to configure this, similar to ArcMap, with a configuration file which tells it to use the 4.0 framework?  I tried to copy the pattern from ArcMap but did not have success.

In general, does anyone know of any issues with using the 4.0 framework in conjunction with ArcGIS Server?

As a followup; other than losing XP support, does anyone know why we cannot use the 4.5 framework for both desktop and server?
