Visual Studio 2013 GIT & Bitbucket


I am a student trying to use VS2013 GIT & Bitbucket. However when trying to clone a private repository I use the username and password that I signed up to bitbucket.

I get the following error message after entering credentials An error occurred. Detailed message: Response status code does not indicate success: 401 (Unauthorized).

Have I missed any steps? I am running in a windows 7 virtual machine with access to the internet.

Please could someone suggest how to resolve this.

Many Thanks.
