ActiveDirectory MembershipProvi der not initialized

I am trying to write a change password routine using the new
ActiveDirectory MembershipProvi der. My code is below. I'm getting an exception
saying that my ActiveDirectory MembershipProvi der has not been initialized.
Can you guys point me to something that tells me what I'm doing wrong, please?

bool checkItOut;
string ls_retVal = "";
ActiveDirectory MembershipProvi der obj = new
ActiveDirectory MembershipProvi der();
checkItOut = obj.ChangePassw ord(as_userName , as_oldPassword,
as_newPassword) ;
catch (Exception ex)
ls_retVal = ex.Message;

Magic is not in the hands of the magician but in the mind of the audience.

Hi all, i'm getting an "object reference not set to an instance of an object" exception when trying to login using the asp:login control and ActiveDirectoryMembershipProvider. What's strange is that if I put a wrong username or password in the connection string the login control tells me this, and doesn't throw the other exception. Any ideas? Thanks in advance

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents.
