First of all, thanks for this very useful contribution.
I tested it on localhost with success but I want to deploy to my Web Server (Microsoft Web Server 2003 Web Edition, IIS, DotNet installed) I encounter the following error :
Configuration Error
Description: An error occurred during the processing of a configuration file required to service this request. Please review the specific error details below and modify your configuration file appropriately.

Parser Error Message: Access to the path 'C:\Inetpub\vhosts\\httpdocs\App_Data\Roles.config' is denied.

Version Information: Microsoft .NET Framework Version:2.0.50727.42; ASP.NET Version:2.0.50727.210

- I set the correct grant access (write access) to ASPNET user for Asp_Data directory
- I have sometime another access error on UserImage directory
- I haven't found Network Service Group or user as indicated on documentation for Server 2003 !?
Ideas ?

With Microsoft Web Server 2003 the user of the ASP.NET worker thread is no longer ASPNET. It is now the 'NETWORK SERVICE'. Because of this you need to grant write access to the 'NETWORK SERVICE' for the folder App_Data.
