Good Day Guys,

First of all thanks for a great looking product now lets see if we can get it to work on our domain :), we seemed to have a few issues running through the setup and creating a db automatically so we setup a db manually, and now we're trying to link it with the connection strings. Our first error was the same as this discussion we follwed the steps in this post and now we are getting a new error with the connection strings.. if you could give us a hand we'd greatly appreciate we feel we're 90% there...

You do not have an Entities Framework specific Connection String there. It should be more like:

< add name="AppEntities" connectionString="metadata=res://*/App.csdl|res://*/App.ssdl|res://*/App.msl;provider=System.Data.SqlClient;provider connection string=&quot;Data Source=.\SQLExpress;Initial Catalog=uManage2;Integrated Security=True;MultipleActiveResultSets=True&quot;" providerName="System.Data.EntityClient" />

 Your Roles issue should clear up as soon as you clear up the connection string issue since the role provider references the SQL connection.
