Facebook Connect - ConnectSession exception.

Nov 23, 2009 at 9:12 PM

I am getting the following exception when trying to create ConnectSession object. The samples also throw the same exception. Any idea how to fix this?

"Unable to populate Facebook Connect Session/User cookie information"

I'm having the exact same problem. I thought I was alone in the world with this after googling for 3 hours... then finding this post, only created 2 hours ago... strange.

I'm running this in the context of MVC on on IIS 7 (which might have something to do with cookies permission issues?) 

Hint of a solution to this would really make my day :)

The facebook module was not loading properly. I was using IIS to run my website. The IIS site was using default application pool that does not load managed modules by default. I fixed it by creating new application pool to support managed modules.

Did you have to use the Classic manged pipeline mode for this new application pool?
