Why does Nuget enter a loop when asking for credentials?

Nuget enters a loop when you are not providing the “-Source <source name>” while trying to install the package.

Try adding this to the command and see if it is working: 

“Nuget.exe install <package name> -Source <source name>”.

If this is not successful, open your NuGet.config file located in the following location  “C:Users<your user name>AppDataRoamingNuGet”.

Please remove all the configuration in the file that will look like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>







Save the file with no configurations in it and add the new source.

“nuget sources Add -Name <source name of your choice> -Source <url to the repo>”

You can find the command in our wiki page “Publishing to a Local Repository”.

After adding the source we will need to provide the credentials also:

“nuget setapikey <username>:<password> -Source <source name from the previous command>”.

To push or install a package you need to use the following command:

“nuget install <package name> -Source <source name from previous command>”.
