Could not load type (ProfileProvider)

Posted on 2009-05-11
Last Modified: 2013-11-05

I have written a custom profile provider but cannot get it to load.

The failure occurs on line 57 of the web.config file which declares the type (type="ParadoxProfileProvider.SllParadoxProvider").

I have carefully followed the Namespace.ClassName sequence that should be given in the type.

I have tried adding the class code to the "App_Code" section of the WebFile, and several variations of the type, including MyApp.Namespace.Classname, etc. but nothing seems to work.

What am I missing?

<!--Membership Provider Configuration-->
    <membership defaultProvider="SllParadoxProvider" userIsOnlineTimeWindow="15">
    <!--Membership Provider Configuration-->
    <!--Profile Provider Configuration-->
    <profile enabled="true" defaultProvider="SllParadoxProvider" >

Open in new window

I solved the problem!

Somehow the code was actually invisible to the website when added as a project.

  I re-added the Membership and Profile providers to the App_Code folder of the website (through the "Add Item" menu), where they both loaded as they should.
