When you use impersonation in your Microsoft .NET Framework
1.1 Service Pack 1 (SP1) based application and the impersonated user account
does not have permissions to access the application .config file, the
application cannot load resources from satellite assemblies.
problem occurs, neutral resources are returned instead of the resources that
are contained in the satellite assembly.
Also, in non-English versions
of Microsoft Office SharePoint Portal Server 2003, the Site Settings page is
displayed in English.Note
This behavior might occur in other non-English versions of
SharePoint Portal Server 2003 that have not yet been reported.

has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed

Steps to reproduce the problem
- Create satellite assembly. To do this, follow these steps:
- Create a text file that is named MyRes.txt, and then
add the following text to the file:
TEST1 = "TEST1 for Neutral resource"
- Create a resource file that is named MyRes.resources by
running the following command:
resgen MyRes.txt MyRes.resources
- Create a resource assembly that is named MyRes.dll by
running the following command:
al /t:lib /embed:MyRes.resources /culture:neutral /out:MyRes.dll
- Create a folder in your project that is named ja-jp to
store another culture.
- Create a text file that is named MyRes.txt in the new
folder, and then add the following text to the file:
TEST1 = "TEST1 for Japanese"
- Create a resource file that is named
MyRes.ja-jp.resources in the new folder by running the following command:
resgen MyRes.txt MyRes.ja-jp.resources
- Create a resource assembly that is named
MyRes.resource.dll by running the following command:
al /t:lib /embed:MyRes.ja-jp.resources /culture:ja-jp /out:MyRes.resources.dll
- Create a console application. To do this, follow these
- Create a Microsoft Visual C# source file that is named
Test.cs, and then add the following code example to the file.
public static extern bool LogonUser(String lpszUsername, String lpszDomain, String lpszPassword, int dwLogonType, int dwLogonProvider, ref IntPtr phToken);
public extern static bool CloseHandle(IntPtr handle);
[DllImport("advapi32.dll", CharSet=CharSet.Auto, SetLastError=true)]
public extern static bool DuplicateToken(IntPtr ExistingTokenHandle, int SECURITY_IMPERSONATION_LEVEL, ref IntPtr DuplicateTokenHandle);
static void Main(string args)
// Load MyRes.dll and initialize ResouceManager.
System.Reflection.Assembly asm = System.Reflection.Assembly.Load("MyRes");
System.Resources.ResourceManager res = new System.Resources.ResourceManager("MyRes", asm);
// Perform impersonation.
IntPtr tokenHandle = new IntPtr(0);
IntPtr dupeTokenHandle = new IntPtr(0);
string UserName, Password;
UserName = "testuser"; // Change the user name and password correctly.
Password = "testuser"; // Change the user name and password correctly.
const int LOGON32_PROVIDER_DEFAULT = 0;
const int LOGON32_LOGON_INTERACTIVE = 2;
const int SecurityImpersonation = 2;
tokenHandle = IntPtr.Zero;
dupeTokenHandle = IntPtr.Zero;
bool returnValue = LogonUser(UserName, ".", Password, LOGON32_LOGON_INTERACTIVE, LOGON32_PROVIDER_DEFAULT,ref tokenHandle);
bool retVal = DuplicateToken(tokenHandle, SecurityImpersonation, ref dupeTokenHandle);
WindowsIdentity newId = new WindowsIdentity(dupeTokenHandle);
WindowsImpersonationContext impersonatedUser = newId.Impersonate();
// Try to obtain the "ja-jp" string from the satellite assembly.
str = res.GetString("TEST1", new System.Globalization.CultureInfo("ja-jp"));
// Determine the result of the ResouceManager.GetString method.
// Determine the current user name.
str = System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent().Name;
if (tokenHandle != IntPtr.Zero)
if (dupeTokenHandle != IntPtr.Zero)
- Create the Test.exe application. To do this, compile
Test.cs by using the following command:
- Create a empty Test.exe.config file in the same folder
as the Test.exe application.
- Make sure that MyRes.dll is in the same folder as the
- In the same folder as the Test.exe application, create
a subfolder that is named ja-jp.
- Copy the MyRes.resource.dll file to the ja-jp
- Create a new user account. To do this, follow these steps:
- Create a new user account that is named testuser, and
then set the password to testuser.
- Add the testuser user account to the Local
- Change the file permission on the Test.exe.config file
to Deny all for the testuser user account.
- At a command prompt, run the Test.exe
When you run the application, TEST1 for Neutral
resource is returned instead of TEST1 for
