AzRoles Windows XP

I've developed a Windows Forms based application that uses the Enterprise Library 4.1 and the Security Provider AzMan within the Security Block.   The development was done on a Vista 32 based machine.  The problem I'm having is that when I deploy the application on a machine running Windows XP PRO SP3 I get the message "The specified network provider is invalid".  I should mention that the AzMan store is located in a SQL Server database.  The application works fine under Vista or Windows7.  I assume the problem is due to the version of azroles on the WinXP machine not supporting ability to connect to a SQL Provider.  Can the azroles be updated under Windows XP SP3 to the same version used by Vista?  Thanks.

The problem is AZMAN with SQL store is not supported in windows xp.  I'm afraid your only option is to implement a different store in your xp machine.
