Did you read and follow the directions in the ReadMe file in the section Running in Release Mode?  If not, there are a few configuration tweaks necessary to use a real (not faked out for demo purposes) OpenId provider.

As far as using Windows Live, your would need to replace the OpenId authentication provider with a Windows Live ID provider.  I have not worked with the Windows Live providers in a while, but there are SDK docs available here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb404787.aspx

And for some guidance that may be more helpful than just the SDK docs, check out the patterns & practices book A Guide to Claims–based Identity and Access Control available at : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff423674.aspx

Let us know if you have any issues,

Hi michaelpuleio,

Thanks for your respose. Did you read and follow the directions in the ReadMe file in the section Running in Release Mode? Yes, I did everything right, but when i Ctrl + F5 and then click at Yahoo or my@OpenID, She didn't work.

Which is the best between Windows Live ID provider and OpenID? Is those the same thing?

 

Can I use both  Windows Live ID provider and  OpenID Providers?

Hi,

It is work now, but below question still lives.

Can I use both Windows Live ID provider and OpenID Providers?

Windows Live ID and Open ID are not the same thing.  They are two different technologies that can be used for authentication.  One is not inherently better than the other, but they do work a bit differently and may fit different needs for different types of applications and users.

For a system where you want to use several different authentication providers, I would again recommend reading A Guide to Claims–based Identity and Access Control available at : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff423674.aspx as a starting point.

I hope that helps,
