[wix-users] Letting end user give userName and Panssword and test SQL server connection

It depends on where the information is stored.  For the products I support, it is always in an encrypted section of the web.config or app.config.  In that case, I use ConfigurationManager to read and parse the encrypted section and return the data.  I used to do that early in the MSI run, but now I'm switching to doing it directly in the managed bootstrapper.
