Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

I even get success audits now:

"A trusted logon process has registered with the Local Security 
Authority. This logon process will be trusted to submit logon requests.

  Logon Process Name:	CVSN

For more information, see Help and Support Center at 

This is what I get after getting the error message from CVSNT. This is 
getting murkier by the minute.
