Component store repeatedly asking for credentials

AlecTucker.2208AlecTucker.2208 AUInsider, University, Developer Group Leader mod

Is anyone else getting this? I'm unable to install components in Visual Studio. I maintain a Virtual Machine which hasn't been updated in a while now and that's working fine.
When I enter credentials nothing happens. Interested to find out if it's just me...:)


  • Same thing is happening to me. Here is a screen shot.

    Entering a username and password and clicking login does nothing. Looks like the layout is broken..

    Same issue for me. This is an urgent issue - please confirm you are looking into it. I cannot add a component to my project from inside Xamarin, or download it manually by checking through my Safari browser and going to

    In both cases login never happens. Which means it is a dead end.

    Regarding logging in via the browser, I can narrow it down being an issue using Safari on Yosemite.

    I can login fine using Google Chrome on Yosemite.

  • Regarding trying to add the Component via Xamarin Studio, I managed to get this working by double-clicking on the Components and opening the Components screen, and then top/right I clicked on my name which logged me out. I logged back in, and then the next time I clicked the "Get More Components" button I did not need to login again - and the component installed fine.

    Had this happen to me recently. What worked for me was to close the solution. Sign out of my account from Xamarin Studio and then sign in again.
