Pen Testing a C# desktop application with source code

Hello All,

I am penetration testing a C# (.Net) desktop application with SQL
server as the backend. The source code of the application is also made
available to me. Here is what I have done till now:

1. Scanned using Nessus and found that application doesn't have any
services running. It just uses Internet for some services and central
database for storage.

2. I used Application Proxy to intercept communications to see if
anything was suspicious but couldn't find anytrhing.

3. I didn't try Buffer Overflow attacks as it is secured by .Net itself.

4. I know the backend API's but what can be done with those?

5. I tried SQL injection but it seems to be protected even for blind
sql injection.

Till now I haven't found any vulnerability. Any idea what more can I
do? Any other techniques? Any docs?

Looking for some help from you guys.
