The plugin is stuck asking me for username and password

Nov 12, 2012 at 9:47 AM

As of the new update this plugin is completely broken for me. I already have a username and password set up in git, but after the update I'm prompted to enter these again. After doing so, the prompt blinks for a moment and clears all of the values i've entered, Leaving me completely unable to progress.

I'm running VS2012 on Windows 8 as Administrator.

Can you please try run Git Bash by right clicking in solution explorer and check if it shows the user name.

git config --global

I have the same problem 

I have checked with:

git config --global

git config --global

Git Bash shows that both mail and user name are OK


I am fully stuck and cannot work with this version.

Please, help.

Context: Windows 7, running VS2012 as a regular user but with administrator rights.

Please give it a try the new build that removed the user name checking.
