You use the SetPropertiesForCurrentUser method to set a user's profile properties from an application that is compatible with the Windows Communication Foundation (WCF). The SetPropertiesForCurrentUser method returns any values that are not set, which might be for any one of the following reasons:

  • The specified profile property is read only (the WriteAccessProperties property for a specified profile property is not set to true).

  • The user profile does not have a profile property that has the matching name.

  • Validation of the value failed.
