FRP - encryption key assignment to users fails

Hello! I struggle for a long time to find a solution for a problem with FRP encryption key assignment to users. While the key is successfully assigned in the ePO, it is not available on the endpoint system. An error is being displayed from FRP Software on the host saying "The currently selected user is not valid". However if I assign the same key to the system instead the user the FRP Software is working fine. Has anyone here ran into similar problems or have an idea where to look for a solution?
