Microsoft Windows Vista and Windows 7 have a new component called Credential Manager. You can store Windows, Certificate-based and Generic credentials. It means these credentials can be automatically provided by Windows on request. So you just simply don’t have to type them in every time you log on somewhere.
These are the steps to automate the Codeplex login process:
- Open Credential Manager
- Choose Add a Windows credential
- Specify the Codeplex server name at Internet or network address, fill in the rest
- Click OK
- Open your TFS project
You won’t be prompted for credentials anymore.
