Switching user in visual studio
Switching companies means switching MSDN licenses, switching the login for visual studio on my own machine I cam across the following error:
We were unable to establish the connection because it is configured for user [email protected] but you attempted to connect using user [email protected] To connect as a different user perform a switch user operation. To connect with the configured identity just attempt the last operation again.
A quick Google and I came across this stackoverflow question and the problem is solved in four simple steps:
- Close Visual Studio
- Start the Developer Command prompt installed with Visual Studio as an administrator.
- Type ‘devenv /resetuserdata’ (‘wdexpress /resetuserdata’ for Express SKUs)
- Start Visual Studio Normally.
Stackoverflow to the rescue again 🙂
