Tuesday, June 22, 2010 1:19 PMCan someone explain to me what you can use this for?
The help says:Credential Manager allows you to store credentials, such as user names and passwords that you use to log on to websites or other computers on a network. By storing your credentials, Windows can automatically log you on to websites or other computers. Credentials are saved in special folders on your computer called vaults. Windows and programs (such as web browsers) can securely give the credentials in the vaults to other computers and websites. For information about saving credentials in a vault, see Store passwords, certificates, and other credentials for automatic logon.
Obviously, this does not work.
Sure it works on a domain resource such as a share, but only if you don't already have a connection to that resource associated with some other account, if you do, you have to net use /d it first. Thanks for making this easy...
What about all the other credentialing methods implied?
How do you make it work with things like yahoo mail logon?How do you make it work with an IWA app? Is that even possible?What web apps does it work with? Is it only htaccess types?
Instead of explaining this in the help, MS does not explain anything. In the end, the educated user is left with no information, and the ignorant user is left more ignorant.
Thanks for any elaboration.

You are talking about the usage of Credential Manager and third party programs. Since we do not have much information regarding third party programs, this forum is not the best place to discuss such topics. Whether the programs work with Credential Manager or not depends on the design of the programs themselves. You’d better to contact the program publisher for more information.

Third Party? OK,
Change yahoo mail to any microsoft web page that asks for credentials.
IWA app? That isn't third party. IWA = Integrated Windows Authentication. I can do IWA on any MS app via the ms runas tool.
Now can anyone answer the questions?
There are no docs describing what it does work with, or how it works. Is there an api exposed? say I want my app to work with it... where's the api doc for that?

i'm having hard times with this tool as well. currently trying to get it working for Shrepoint and Visual studio team foundation server. no matter what i do it is still asking for credentials. currently Sharepoint is priority. checked all IE9 settings, checked security policies on my PC - nothing seems to be wrong there.
is there an example where it works?

Amazing, I just posted a response to this in another place, but I feel obligated to do so again....
NOBODY in the enitire Microsoft universe can give any explanations on Credential Manager other than a copy and paste from the Credential Manager instructions page. This app is junk, does not work as explained or expected, total waste of time. The only responses anybody can give (Yes that includes all you MVPs) is to either ask another vendor, post the question in a different place, or hey, here is what it can do for you! (if of course it worked).
