KB: VShell for Windows - Public Key LSA Module
In order for public-key only authentication to be possible with VShell for Windows, A) VShell's "LSA Module" must be installed and B) the LSA module must be loaded by the Windows operating system.
A) Verifying the LSA Module is Installed
To determine if the LSA Module has been installed:
B) Verifying the LSA Module is Loaded
Microsoft Windows only loads authentication modules during startup/boot-time, so even when the above two elements have resulted in a verification that VShell's LSA Module has been installed, the machine must be rebooted in order for the LSA module to be loaded and used by the Windows operating system.
To ensure that the LSA Module has been loaded by the Windows operating system, reboot the Windows machine following your VShell installation.
NOTE: VShell's 32-bit LSA Module will not be loaded by a 64-bit version of Windows. Newer versions of 32-bit VShell will not permit installation on a 64-bit version of Windows. Older versions of VShell that were only available in 32-bit installations (all VShell versions prior to 3.0) will only be able to perform public-key only authentication on a 32-bit version of Windows.
