I posted this on stackoverflow with no luck. Thought I would post it here just
to be thorough:

I am trying to use the ProfilePropertyLoader to display a welcome message in
this format:

<SPSWC:ProfilePropertyLoader runat="server"/>Welcome,
<SPSWC:ProfilePropertyValue PropertyName="FirstName" ApplyFormatting="false"
runat="server"/><SPSWC:ProfilePropertyValue PropertyName="LastName"
ApplyFormatting="false" runat="server"/>!which I have in my master page.

The site that uses both windows authentication and forms authentication. This
works fine when logging in via the windows auth site, but when I attempt it
using forms authentication I get an Access Denied error while logging into the

I even tried setting permissions of a user to full control in sharepoint but
still no luck. It seems to be denying forms users (simple auth against the
aspnetdb database in sql server) access to those controls.

Anyone have any ideas?

If you're getting profile information, might it be expecting an AD user?

I didn't see anything either online or in the documentation that would suggest
this was only good using windows auth. It should work regardless of the
provider. Did I miss something?

I'm just going with the usual assumption that when something like
this breaks, it's usually because you're short some Windows privileges...
especially when you're talking about retrieving user information.

You might try searching for "Impersonation" along with this control. Again,
just echoing back some first impressions without any real experience here.
You might check the Windows Event Log as well as the SharePoint logs in the
12 hive; there could be some additional information.

The problem might be accessing the SSP that houses the information. Your
Mysites host is where the profile information is kept. Its set to give NT
Authority\Authenticated users read access to MySites. I assume that would
include profiles. NT Authority\Authenticated users would only include people
authenticated by Windows, not Forms based users. You might need to add your FBA
users to the SSP's personalization services permissions.
