  • Are you trying to run your code in your local environment ? If yes, can you please check if you have selected the correct Account under "Azure Service Authentication" in your Visual Studio. (Go to Visual Studio and Tools > Options).

    When you run code in your local the AppAuthentication library uses your developer credentials to connect to run your local development environment and fetches tokens using Visual Studio, Azure CLI or Azure AD Authentication.  If none of options works then you get the error you have posted in your question. Please refer to Local development authentication for details.
