Visual Studio 2017 Prompts For Login

Problem:

I’m not very sure why Visual Studio 2017 continuously prompts me for login today. I entered the username and login successfully then the prompt never disappears and I could not access my VSTS.

Solution:

After some Googling, I found a post discussing the issue. In summary:

There is an issue with the update installer which causes some users’ identity cache to become corrupted, which produces very similar behaviour to the other bug. The following has generally fixed this:

  • Close all instances of VS
  • Open %LOCALAPPDATA% in File Explorer, e.g. c:\users\\AppData\Local
  • Delete the .IdentityService folder
  • Launch VS. You’ll have to sign in again

After that it should stop prompting you.

It totally worked for me!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
