Sharepoint 2003 and Windows 8.1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • When trying to login to a Sharepoint 2003 site on my windows 8.1 machine it auto populates the domain name of the computer.  Even when I choose other account, I don't have an option to remove the domain name field.

    How do I fix or be able to enter the domain\username and password in freeform fashion so i can access the site.

    Is 8.1 even compatible with Sharepoint 2003?

  • Hi Pateola,

    I'm thinking your Win 8 may have stored your credentials in the 'credential manager' (Control Panel\User Accounts\Credential Manager) - try removing the related credential from the above location and give this another try. 

    You can also try running your Internet explorer as a different user: http://www.thewindowsclub.com/how-to-run-as-different-user-in-windows-7

    Hope this helps!
