Hello Michael Buchsbaum,
Please remove the custom role provider - it's not needed for that version.
I am a little bit lost in the explanations though - first you say that the users are able to login with the web.config settings only, then you set CMSAccess on their roles and they cannot login anymore. Why do you need to set the permissions on both places? Perhaps I am missing something, for which I apologize.
If it is possible, please provide us with a login link (in a private thread) - we will try to login and check all permissions.
All the best,
the Telerik team
