Today I was testing and adding in an application documentation the use of aspnet_setreg in order to encrypt data in the web.config. Although I followed every step in the KB (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q329290) I received everytime the error.
I was wondering which was the problem, so I started msnling 😉 and found Bryan Likes post about his problem with dot use.
I used an underscore character so I tested other name, and voilá, it solved the problem.
So, What is the point? is there any info about valid characters?
Please comment on this, I will try to find it 🙂
