Windows 7 Client Password Dialogue Box on Start Up

help

#1

Hi
For a few weeks, since a windows update, a password request box appears each time I start my PC. How can I store the password so that I don't have to enter it manually every time as it did prior to the update? I have looked everywhere but cannot find where to enter it.

A password box for ownCloud?

I would try to reinstall the client, you data stays on the system if you reinstall.

Have you changed the method of login into windows?

Thanks for your reply dmitry
I uninstalled the existing client and installed the latest download which installed fine but the same problem occurred. I wasn't asked for any set up details it just carried on as before with the password dialogue box and syncing the files. I presume that I didn't uninstall it correctly?


#4

Yeah.

I have noticed, that if I login to Linux without password - I get asked for the password for the client every time, because the key chain is still locked.

I suspect similar behaviour on windows if you login without password. Have you changed that?


#5

No, I haven't changed anything although I suspect something changed on a Windows update. I also get asked for my Office 365 password sometimes when I start my PC but not every time. Maybe it's a Windows problem and not Owncloud?


#6

I would suspect that :slight_smile:

Somehow windows does not remember the passwords correctly

PS. That's why I am on ubuntu :smiley:


#7

Thanks dmitry, I'll check that out later


#8

Sorted it dmitry

Added the details to Windows Credential Manager and now no dialogue box. Hopefully it will stay there

Great to hear that, now I know what to do in that situation
