When Source Tree is open on Windows 7, and this is all-day, every-day, a prompt comes up asking for a sign into Visual studio. I don't have VS nor have I ever used it.
There are two possibilties that come to mind- 1. It is on this machine somewhere in the background and I cannot access it. It's a work computer and a previous user might have had it installed. If so does anyone know how I could check this? i.e safe-mode etc. Obviously I checked that it is not installed visibly/normally in my environment.
2. More likely, since I have pulled from some remotes that have a Visual Studio origins, and I have done this many times, it associates my end with the VS orgin and sends the prompt.
If I close the prompt it immediatley opens again, and again, and
again, ad nauseaum. Literally ad nauseum!
This only happens with Source Tree and it is iffuriating. Does anyone know how I can stop it from continually opening once I've closed it?
Can you check to see if there is a link to Visual Studio under Git Credentials Manager? I believe there are screenshots on how to remove the settings here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/15381198/remove-credentials-from-git
Sounds like Git is trying to open VS upon opening SourceTree, or something of that sort.
It took me some time to look into this. I disabled the credential managers like the SO post said. This did nothing. The screenshots show how to disable my credentials entirely. Not sure if this would work, but I don't actually want to do this, unless it might solve the problem.
Also, I have my windows credentials manager open and there is no Visual Studio info. There is some bitbucket, some github and a bunch of MS office stuff. Prob used for logging into company stuff.
This VS prompt has actuallt gotten worse and now opens 4 windows. Only way to work is to have the VS studio prompt behind other windows.
Other ideas? Impossible to work like this.
