Getting this error when anonymous users or users not login in try to register for an event:

The requested Profile (gid=17) is disabled OR it is not configured to be used for 'Profile' listings in its Settings OR there is no Profile with that ID OR you do not have permission to access this profile

I have tried setting ACL in Civi for anonymous to register.

  • Are you using Drupal as a CMS? There is also a permission in the drupal permission setting regarding profiles. Commented Nov 12, 2015 at 8:18
  • Do check register for events, profile listings and forms are enabled for anonymous users. Commented Nov 13, 2015 at 6:14
  • The profile lists and forms was the key to solving this problem. Thanks for your input!

Following my comment, you get this error when you don't have necessary permissions of the profiles for anonymous users.

Required Permission - profile listings and forms

register for events permission is needed if you get Access Denied on Event registration page.
