Ask the Experts

Have you changed the security settings of your browser? If it been so change it !!


What i mean is

Did you check you IE Tools -> "Internet Options" --> "Security -> Local Intranet", in Custom level, make sure "Automatic logon with current username and password" is checked.

You will have to have this option checked.

This should hopefully resolve the issue.



what i did is reinstalled IIS and it fixed the problem.
