First off, any help with this would be much appreciated.

I am certain that I am making a rather obvious mistake but it is escaping me right now. I looked over the installation procedures and none fit exactly what I am trying to do. I have want to install YAFNet as a stand alone web app in a subfolder of my existing ASP.NET MVC app. I want to share the same ASP.NET membership that my MVC app is using.

I downloaded the one-click install and directed it the best way I knew how. I told it to create a new APP and to install it in the FORUMS subfolder of my MVC app. It installed the files, created the database on my SQL Server.

At this point when I tried to access the YAFNet install I got the error listed at the end.

I changed the db.config and web.config files that came with the install. In the db.config file I overwrote the connection string with the identical connection string from my MVC app. In the web.config file I replaced the Membership, Profile, and roleManager nodes with the corresponding nodes from the MVC app. I am still getting the same error.

Thanks again for any help/guidance.

I wish I could delete this as I am past this point now. I think it was the way I told the one-click to install things. I created a subdomain, did the install, and all is good now.

However, I have a follow up question that probably belongs in the ASP.NET Membership section. After my successful install I swapped out the connection string to point to my exisint ASP.NET Membership db. When I tried to login to complete the configuration, it failed. I changed things back and stepped through the wizard. Now... How do I swap it over to my existing Membership DB and set myself up as an administrator?
