You have to make sure that the "requireQuestionAndAnswer" option in the Membership Provider area of the site's "web.config" file is set to "false".

Example:<membership defaultProvider="AspNetSqlMembershipProvider"> <providers> <remove name="AspNetSqlMembershipProvider" /> <addconnectionStringName="AspNetSqlProvider"passwordAttemptWindow="10"enablePasswordRetrieval="false"enablePasswordReset="true"requiresQuestionAndAnswer="false"applicationName="/"requiresUniqueEmail="false"passwordFormat="Hashed"description="Stores and retrieves membership data from the Microsoft SQL Server database" name="AspNetSqlMembershipProvider"type="System.Web.Security.SqlMembershipProvider, System.Web, Version=2.0.3600.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a" /> </providers></membership>

If this setting is "true" then you will receive this error when trying to create a new user.
