About three weeks ago one of the developers changed there network account password. NOw when they use Visual Studio 2005 to try and upload files to the wwwroot on our test web server they are presented with a windows login prompt what will not accept there current network username and password. This login prompt never came up before. I have already reboot the test server, their workstation and made sure there workstation wasn't set to save passwords. No worked.. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!1
