I'd like to use passwordFormat="Encrypted", but am receiving the below exception when I try to create a new user. All I did was change from "Hashed" to "Encrypted". I assume I'm missing some configuration. Can anyone explain how to get this working or point
me to a resource that explains it?

I assume I'm missing some configuration.
Can you show what you currently have in your Web.Config for that section?

Sure, thanks for taking a look. I fiddled with some other attributes.

All right, exactly what I wanted to see..... compare it to a working Web.Config i have with fully working retrievable passwords
So what i'd suggest, and this is only because i can tell you the above works, is replace <clear /> with the <remove name="...." />
And another thing I remember is that you have to set a "validationKey" and "decryptionKey" in Web.Config as well (sorry this block won't work, i had to change some of the values so i am not posting our encryption keys). This node is a child of <system.web>
I used some "ADAM generator" to generate those keys
Oooohh.. i still had bookarked the blog post where i learned that
the link to the program i used is in the very last comment

Thanks MorningZ, you rock. Tthat did the trick. Adding the machineKey, that is. Doesn't seem to make a difference whether I use "clear" or "remove name" - either way works.

I havehad the same problem, followed what you have done, but when I use the <asp:passwordrecovery > tag my email still contains the password encrypted - what am I doing wrong?
I would appreciate it is anyone could help
my web.config file, along with other stuff, contains this:
System.Web, Version=22.214.171.124, Culture=neutral,
Thanks in anticipation

I don't know if this help, but it worked for me. If the user already exist the information about that user is stored in the default format, hashed. You must delete the user and create it again.
