If you have the Microsoft Transaction Control module running as part of IIS
(might be called MS DTC), make sure it is running as the right user with the
right permissions as well. Usually it is IWAM_*servername* whereas the HTML
piece of IIS runs as IUSR_*servername* . . . seen that problem before and
the DTC piece was running as a local user without proper rights . . . I set
it to the proper user and the authentication library loaded properly and did
not prompt for username and password any longer.
