I don't understand that question. Can you rephrase it please?

It was a b###h of an API to try to code for (it was very difficult to develop a custom "GINA"), but the default MSGINA.DLL had the domain drop-down list which it refreshed every couple of minutes (if memory serves) by contacting a DC to pull down a list of trusted domains.

The new credUI architecture in Vista/Win2K8/Win7 is far superior to GINA, but MSGINA.DLL is gone and so is the domain drop down list.

Thanks
No problem at all

To the best of my knowledge, and I'm relatively confident about this, it is not possible to obtain that domain drop-down list with any of the credUI Windows flavours (Vista onwards).

Hence, use UNC (domain\username) or UPN (username@domain.com) to pick which domain to log on to.
