Visual Studio 2017 Credential trouble

If you experience that VS wants to refresh your credentials in eternal loop. Or you refresh and it goes back to wanting to refresh again there is a big chance that this will help you.

To verify if you have the same trouble I had, check the latest log-file in %TEMP%\servicehub\logs. If there is an error and it is something like “multiple_matching_tokens_detected” it is the same thing.

Fix? Reset the credential cache:

  1. Close Visual Studio
  2. Delete %LOCALAPPDATA%\.IdentityService


Worked for me 🙂
