    Not working anymore with umbraco 6.2.x (new membership provider)

    Unluckily this plugin doesn't work anymore on umbraco 6.2.x, I suspect because umbraco 6.2 introduced a new membership provider.

    When I try to change a password via package I get this error:


    Server Error in '/' Application.

    Unable to cast object of type 'Umbraco.Web.Security.Providers.UsersMembershipProvider' to type 'umbraco.providers.UsersMembershipProvider'.

    Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

    Any chance to update this package, or better to create a new version that works with umbraco 6.2.x and let this one as is?

    Or is there some source code available?

    THX for letting me know. This is the only solution I know to let the user change his password without giving him access to the whole "Users" section... cheers

    I am pretty sure that that's a built in feature now on the main content tab? If not, happy to dig out the source and email it to you (as per the email you sent)
