I've got an internal C# application that I want to start deploying externally. I've got features that I only want available to internal users, but I don't want to bother with multiple releases. I also don't want to change the way that internal users are currently using the program.
So, what I'm thinking is: 1) Check the domain of the PC that the program is running on. If it's my company's domain, then turn on the internal features. The program may run on PCs that are disconnected from the domain and running offline.
2) Have a password option on top of that to enable internal features.
So, for internal users on domain machines, it looks exactly the same as it always did. For internal users on non-domain machines, they have the ability to turn on the internal features. For external users, they don't get the internal features.
What's the best way to implement the "is the computer part of a domain, even if offline" in C#?
