Win7 does not remember the password when connecting SQL Server to another computer ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I do not post here to send here. When using a shared network drive, win7 does not remember any other computer passwords and when running applications with SQL Server connections win7 does not remember SQL Server's user/pass, SQL Server connection type is ODBC, you know how to fix this error ?

    It’s not an error, just a configuration.

    Go to Control Panel\User Accounts\Credential Manager

    Click on Windows Credential,  add a Windows credential, enter your shared network drive’s address and access credential.

    About your application, you need to check its setting, Windows cannot make app remember SQL server password.

  • I also tried your way just for me on win7:
    Go to Control Panel\User Accounts\Manage your Credentials
    after entering the computer name, the user/pass program runs fine if i reboot the computer then win7 can not remember the password of the other computer that has the network drive. now, what must I do ?
