It sounds like both parameters of the System.Web.Security.Roles.AddUsersToRoles method are arrays (see http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.web.security.roles.adduserstoroles(VS.80).aspx), but you're trying to pass it single objects instead of arrays, so it's complaining that it can't convert them for you.

You could patch the difference with something like:

    System.Web.Security.Roles.AddUsersToRoles(New String() { CreateUserWizard1.UserName}, New String() { MyRole })
