This Membership Provider has not been configured to support password retrieval.

    When an anonymous user has created an new account (with the CreateUserWizard
    control), i want to let generate a password and to send it to the
    address of the email provided by the new membershipuser in the
    CreateUserWizard control.

    i think i need to define a custom provider for membership and i tried this:

    <add name="aspnetdb" connectionString="Data
    Security=True;User Instance=True" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>

    <authentication mode="Forms" />

    <add name="MyMembershipProvider"
    type="System.Web.Security.SqlMembershipProvider, System.Web,
    Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a"
    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As
    System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
    If User.Identity.IsAuthenticated Then
    Dim pw As String
    pw = Membership.GetUser.GetPassword.ToString
    End If
    End Sub

    But this generate the error:
    "This Membership Provider has not been configured to support password
    at line "pw = Membership.GetUser.GetPassword.ToString"

    The problem is, i think, that it still the default provider which is used
    and not my custom one. But i don't knwo how to fix it.Maybe i don't even
    need to defiine a custom provider and maybe i can use the default?

    Thanks for help

    I changed this in web.config:

    <membership defaultProvider="MyMembershipProvider">

    but now, i get this error:
    "You must specify a non-autogenerated machine key to store passwords in the
    encrypted format. Either specify a different passwordFormat, or change the
    machineKey configuration to use a non-autogenerated decryption key."

    Do i have to change the line in web.config: passwordFormat="Encrypted" in
    "Clear"? But then the security is not guaranteed?
