I'm trying to create a new local user in Windows 8.1 x64. This user will be used to host an IIS app pool and connect to a SQL Server instance. However, when I try to start the app pool or login with the user, the user profile service gives me an error saying the profile cannot be loaded.
There's no directory/folder created in C:\Users for that local user. And Windows Event viewer shows these errors:
Windows cannot find the local profile and is logging you on with a temporary profile. Changes you make to this profile will be lost when you log off.
Windows cannot log you on because your profile cannot be loaded. Check that you are connected to the network, and that your network is functioning correctly.
DETAIL - Only part of a ReadProcessMemory or WriteProcessMemory request was completed.
I know this is a problem specific to Windows 8 and higher. But no one can seem to find a solution this problem.
I see the same set of problems here:
