Unable to load ASP.Net users profile


installed Profiler for testing on our dev win2k server with IIS5, asp.net 1.1 framework.

Using the wizard I can get all the way selecting web app to profile but when finishing and the Profiler starts it fails.

I can see the profiler is stoping all webs running but shortly after the messag comes saying "Unable to load ASP:net use's profile[5]"

How can I get this working?

    When profiling ASP .NET 1.1 on IIS5, ANTS Profiler tries to 'inject' some information into the ASPNET user's environment in the registry. Perhaps there is a problem with the ASPNET user's profile. It may be a good idea to check the application and/or system event logs for any entries relating to the userenv process.

    If ASP .NET is configured to use the built-in ASPNET account, it may work to use the system object in control panel to delete the ASPNET user's profile. It should be re-created the next time the ASPNET user logs on.
