Please tell me why you can't use ChangePassword control? AFAIK, that's the simple way to do it.

You'll need to know the old password for this to work:

using System.Web.Security;
...

string UserName = User.Identity.Name; // or some other source for the user name
MembershipUser UserToChange = Membership.GetUser(UserName);
UserToChange.ChangePassword(OldPassword, NewPassword);

Are you able to tell me why does the ChangePasswrod control gives "password incorrect or ........" error even if it has successfully changed the password?
