I am trying to use ASPNET_SETREG.exe to encrypt my username and password and
store them in the registry. I am running Windows 2003 Server RC2. I downloaded
ASPNET_SETREG.exe from Microsoft’s website.
I first ran the utility to encrypt my username and password:
c:\Tools>aspnet_setreg.exe -k:SOFTWARE\MY_SECURE_APP\identity -u:"MyPC\MyUser"
I also included the identity information in my web.config file:
When I try to run the web application, I get the following error:
Error reading the password from the registry.
