Error when creating new user

Vote:
 

Environment:

  • EPiServer CMS 6 R2
  • EPiServer Relate 2 R2 on top of above

Issue:

  • Trying to add user programmatically but fails and get this error:    "Exception message: Value cannot be null.
    Parameter name: value"

 

This happens when I try to add user or try geta guid.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

IUser newUser = CommunitySystem.CurrentContext.DefaultSecurity.GetUserByUserName(EmailBox.Text.Trim(',')) as IUser;

                if (newUser == null)
                {
                    DatabaseHandler.Instance.RunInTransaction(delegate
                    {
                        newUser = (IUser)CommunitySystem.CurrentContext.DefaultSecurity.NewUser;
                        newUser.UserName = UserNameBox.Text.Trim(',');
                        newUser.EMail = EmailBox.Text.Trim(',');
                        newUser.Password = PasswordBox.Text.Trim(',');
                        newUser.GivenName = FirstNameBox.Text.Trim(',');
                        newUser.SurName = LastNameBox.Text.Trim(',');
                        newUser.Alias = String.Format("{0} {1}", newUser.GivenName, newUser.SurName);
                        newUser.Culture = System.Globalization.CultureInfo.CurrentUICulture;
                  
                        newUser.BirthDate = new DateTime(2008, 3, 9, 16, 5, 7, 123);

                        activationGuid = (Guid)CommunitySystem.CurrentContext.DefaultSecurity.AddUserToActivate(newUser); // Error!******
                        //newUser = (IUser)CommunitySystem.CurrentContext.DefaultSecurity.AddUser(newUser); // Error!*******
                                          
                    });
                }

Please share the stack trace, it helps pinpoint generic error messages such as this one.

If you debug that and look at all your textbox values are they filled?

 

Or what do the properties on newUser look like before calling AddUser?
