You are missing the step which configures the default provider.

Strangely this msdn documentation doesnt mention it either and it is supposed to be a complete walkthrough:

Ah, here we go.

Check out Scotts introduction to using profiles

If you look about half way down you will see the section entitled "Provider Configuration". This shows you how to configure the provider in your web.config which includes the part where you point it at a valid connectionstring (which is the problem you are experiencing).
