    i've hit a wall - i have the club starter kit working on one machine - i copy all the files up to a hosting server and for some reasons i am unable to get it to work

    keep getting this error

    failed to generate a user instance of sql server due to failure in retrieving the users local application data path. please make sure the user has a local user profile on the computer. the connection was closed.

    Now when i run it from inside visual web developer it runs fine - just when i put it under the inetpub folders it craps out.

    this has been killing me the whole freakin day.

    I am far from an expert but I just went through the process of modifying the kit and moving it to a hosted site and perhaps can offer some ideas. One thing you have to change is the connection streing for the aspnet tables. The kit assumes the aspnet tables are in an instance of SQL Express which doesn't work on a hosted site like mine. I copied all the aspnet tables to my SQL Server 2000 and changed the connection string accordingly.
