Help with HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.Name

Hello:

I am trying to initialize a User object at application start:

Sub Application_Start(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
' Fires when the application is started
Dim loOutcome As InnoBox_BO.User._Outcome
Dim goUser As InnoBox_BO.User
goUser = InnoBox_BO.User.GetInstance
loOutcome =
goUser.CreateByUserID(HttpContext.Current.User.Ide ntity.Name)

End Sub

I am getting an exception that says that
HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.Name is not valid.

Can somebody help me?

Thanks.

Application_Start is called when the app starts prior to the request being
processed. IOW, the runtime hasn't had a chance to determine who the user
is.
