AuthWindow (Not Responding)

Jul 26, 2013 at 1:58 PM
This is the first time I try to use 1.4.0.0. When I start it, it shows the AuthWindow for me to login to StackExchange. When I try to type in my email address, after the first character, the authwindow freezes like it's doing Internet communication on the primary thread. After a few seconds it unfreezes, but the character does not appear in the edit box.

So I cannot use this version. :-(

Thanks,

Hi David,

I can repro the problem... see also: http://stackapps.com/questions/4244/desktop-login-webbrowser-hangs-net

The current work around is to "manually" login to the URL in the IE browser via the URL:
https://stackexchange.com/oauth/dialog?client_id=1736&scope=no_expiry,read_inbox&redirect_uri=https://stackexchange.com/oauth/login_success

After this is done once, the next time you start the StackAppBridge, it will find the login automatically and will login...

Greetings
Jochen

Thanks Jochen, this workaround worked. :-)
