    According to the error message above, it's recommended to check your authentication procedure first.

    To enable authentication 

    1.In Solution Explorer, open the shortcut menu for the Properties node, and then choose Open.

    2.In the Application Designer, choose the Access Control tab.

    3.In the Select the type of authentication to use: list, choose either Use Windows authentication or Use Forms authentication.

    4.If you chose Use Windows authentication, choose either the Allow only users specified in the Users screen of your application option button or the Allow any authenticated Windows user option button.

         The application will now require users to provide credentials in order to access the application.

    Forms authentication is managed by the application itself, and a user must supply a username and a password to access the application.

    In Windows authentication, the credentials that were used to log on to the computer where the application is run are used to authenticate the application user, and no additional username or password is required.

    If you have any concern, please let me know.
