I was able to create users and roles without any problem using the web admin tool that comes with VS. But when I try to login using the same credentials I am always getting "Your login attempt was not successful. Please try again." error message. I am using MS Sqlserver 2008 as the backend. I am not using any .mdf or sqlexpress databases. I even deletd the App_Data folder. In sqlprofiler, I see the web admin tool is connecting, but when I try to login using the login control, it doesn't even show up on the sql profiler. I tried to launch VS 2008 as an admin, still no success. I tried to browse with IE or FireFox. The dev site is not hosted on IIS yet, and it is running on the dev server that comes with VS 2008.

Ironically I was able to to create a website last year with these same controls on VS2005 and Windows XP professional, and the site is running like a charm!
