I’m using Visual Studio Enterprise 2017 on Windows 7 Pro 64-bit, and have Git version 22.214.171.124 installed.
I have two problems using this setup, and was hoping someone can help…
- I have a project hosted in GitHub, and ahve connected VS to it, so I can commit changes. However, every time I close VS, it seems to forget that it was connected to gitHub. Next time I open the project, it shows it as not being under source control.
If I click the “Add to source control” button on the VS status bar (bottom-right of the window), it shows Git as an option, and if I choose that, it reconnects correctly. Anyone know why I need ot do this? I’m used to working with SVN, and I never have to do this, VS always knows it’s under source control.
- Probably conencted to the above, whenever I want to commit code, it asks me to sign in to GitHub, following which I get an email telling me “A personal access token has been added to your account”
Even more annoying is that once I’ve logged in and committed, if I do another commit later (same VS session), it asks me to log in again and sends me another email.
Anyone know why it does this? Why doesn’t it remember my log-in details?
Thanks for any help.
