Description Gary 2017-05-19 16:21:39 UTC
To reproduce: 

1. Open a solution which utilises a private repository on myget.org. 
2. Have incorrect credentials saved on the setting UI.
3. Popup will appear on solution open asking or credentials for myGet.
4. Enter correct credentials
5. Popup will just reappear seconds later no matter what you do.

How many projects are in the solution?
Comment 2 Matt Ward 2017-05-19 16:26:01 UTC
Also does it stop happening when you restart the IDE?
Comment 3 Gary 2017-05-19 16:39:01 UTC
There are 10+ projects in the solution. It stopped when I fixed the credentials in the Preferences/Nuget/Sources settings page. Was supplying the popup with valid credentials but it didn't feed back into that settings UI nor seemingly authenticate me with myGet.
Comment 4 Gary 2017-05-19 16:40:28 UTC
In essence the popup is appearing too many times obviously and also that it doesn't seem to be in sync with that settings screen. It was particularly painful then for me because I didn't know of the existence of the Preferences/Nuget/Sources screen that cleared it all up for me so I had to live with constant popups for a while.
