ASP.NET Personalization Error

In development I just added some elements to the profile object that I'm trying to associate with my users.  It works great in dev, with this code in my web.config:

            <profile>
                  <properties>
                        <add name="Nickname" defaultValue="default"/>
                        <add name="Initials" defaultValue="default"/>
                        <add name="PRO" defaultValue="default"/>
                        <add name="Phone" defaultValue="default"/>
                  </properties>
            </profile>


When I add that to my web.config in Prod, I get this error for my entire web app:
This application was precompiled with personalization turned off, but it appears to have been turned on after the precompilation, which is not supported.

How do I turn on personalization?  I tried putting the following in my Prod web.config, but still got the error:
            <webParts>
                  <personalization defaultProvider="MyAspNetSqlPersonalizationProvider">
                        <providers>
                              <add connectionStringName="LocalSqlServer" name="MyAspNetSqlPersonalizationProvider" type="System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts.SqlPersonalizationProvider, System.Web, Version=2.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a" />
                        </providers>
                  </personalization>
            </webParts>

Have you recompiled and re-deployed the app or have you literally just added those elements to the config on your live site? If it's the latter then you need to re-build and re-deploy the site.

Yea, I just added the profile code to the web.config on my server.  When you say re-deploy, what does that mean exactly?  My app consists of dozens of aspx pages.  Do they all need to be copied over?  I guess I don't know how the production server is to know that the app has been recomplied, unless it was in the web config.  Please advise.  Thanks,

Justin

When you compile your site the compiler takes the profile information and dynamically generates a class to strongly-type your profile values. Which means you can't just add profile information to your live site without recompiling the site.

If none of your aspx pages have changed then you may be able to get away with simply recompiling and deploying just the updated dll.

I use single page assemblies when I compile, so there's a dll for every page in my site (about 40).  Do I need to compile and move them all over then?  I'm guessing that I do, because every page I try to navigate to produces the error.  That's where my confusion was.  If the web.config can't fix it, I think I'd need to replace them all.  Why is that not just a web.config setting?  That seems strange.  thx -

The web.config values purely serve as a way to define what values you want to store in the profile. The app needs to be compiled because it needs to create a strongly-typed class based on the values in the config file. Basically so that it is able to correctly serialize the values to and from the underlying membership database.

I recompiled, then moved one pages aspx and dll over to my prod server.  
I then manually added the profile tag to my prod web.config.
When I navigated to that page, I got the error message again.

My web.config code is below.
		<httpRuntime executionTimeout="1000"  maxRequestLength="1000000" />
		<membership>
			<providers>
				<remove name="AspNetSqlMembershipProvider"/>
				<add name="AspNetSqlMembershipProvider" type="System.Web.Security.SqlMembershipProvider" connectionStringName="LocalSqlServer"  enablePasswordReset="true" requiresQuestionAndAnswer="false" requiresUniqueEmail="true" minRequiredNonalphanumericCharacters="0" minRequiredPasswordLength="7" maxInvalidPasswordAttempts="5" />
			</providers>
		</membership>

		<webParts>
			<personalization defaultProvider="MyAspNetSqlPersonalizationProvider">
				<providers>
					<add connectionStringName="LocalSqlServer" name="MyAspNetSqlPersonalizationProvider" type="System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts.SqlPersonalizationProvider, System.Web, Version=2.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a" />
				</providers>
			</personalization>
		</webParts>

		<profile>
			<properties>
				<add name="Nickname" defaultValue="default"/>
				<add name="Initials" defaultValue="default"/>
				<add name="PRO" defaultValue="default"/>
				<add name="Phone" defaultValue="default"/>
			</properties>
		</profile>

I've got it working now.  I seemed to have forgotten to copy my app code dll over.  Brilliant...  
Thanks a ton for your help
