Cannot see profile when creating new user

I'm using the Developer edition of Salesforce, following this tutorial:

I've got to the stage where I have to create users in certain profiles.


I have created a profile called Recruiter, and its User License is shown as Salesforce.


Now, I go to create a new user, I select Salesforce Platform for the User License, but then the only profile available in the drop down is Standard Platform User. In fact, no matter which User License I select (, Chatter Free or Salesforce Platform), I still can't see the Recruiter profile in the Profile dropdown.


Further, I have 24 profiles created in total - some were created automatically for me when I signed up, and others are from various experiments - but the vast majority of these never appear for selection on the New User page. The only ones I ever see are (depending on which User License I select) are:


  • - Free User
  • Chatter Free User
  • Chatter - Moderator
  • Standard Platform User

What am I doing wrong?

DE org has only 2 Salesforce license by default. Means if you have 2 active users in the org you can't add another Salesforce license user.

So you need to deactivate 1 of 2 existing users who have Salesforce license beforehand.
