    Thank you. This really helped. I was going nuts trying to find the cause. You would think IIS would enable this parameter to true, particularly for .Net apps

    Wow, great post, but my problem is similar and cannot be resolved with your solution.

    This IIS app pool attribute is already setted to TRUE but THE SAME problem occurs only when I’m trying to make a “ForgotPassword” action for not authenticated users,,, For authenticated users works fine.
    Do you know what it can be?

      Ouch! You are the unlucky first person I have encountered where ensuring that “Load User Profile” was true did NOT solve the problem. I am afraid that I do not have any additional advice for solving this issue. If you find a solution feel free to share it in a comment here.

        Thanks for the quick response! So, I figured out what occurred with my application… My WEB.CONFIG was with the tag ” “, this was the problem with annonimous requests with GeneratePasswordResetTokenAsync method.

    We have applied All above solutions, Unfortunately, It was not work.
    Then I have tried with and Its work for me.
    Even though we have changed setting “Load User Profile = false” in IIS.
    Please let me know weather its right or wrong.But its working for me.

      I am not sure I understand. Are you saying that you found a solution other than changing “Load User Profile” to “true”? Can you explain what you did?
