    I know MS only supports the latest OS and one before it but Vista adoption has been low so please support IIS 5.1. Also does this Windows Server 2003 works on XP Professional x64 which also has IIS 6.0?

    Microsoft Vista adoption in the Belgian HealthCare market is very low. Support for Windows XP is needed, or at least some guidance to authenticate with Geneva on a Windows XP rich client.

    Has anyone else run into this issue:

    "ID6035: Cannot create a HashAlgorithm with name ‘http://www.w3.org/2001/04/xmldsig-more#rsa-sha256‘ using the ‘System.IdentityModel.Tokens.X509AsymmetricSecurityKey’ crypto provider. SHA256 may require a minimum platform of Windows Server 2003 and .NET 3.5 SP1."

    My setup:

    Windows Server 2003 R2 Enterprise x64 Edition w/ Service Pack 2 running as a Virtual Machine

    .NET 3.5  / Visual Studio 2008 w/ SP1

    I have installed the WIF for Windows 2003 and the WIF SDK.
