Sometimes when I try to pull or push with a git repository, it fails with an error message. Other times it works fine. The first time I do this after launching IntelliJ, it always asks me for my password, and the pull or push always succeeds at this point. But after that initial success, it succeeds intermittently. Mostly it fails, but I try again and again until it succeeds. Here's the error message:
Git Pull Failed
unable to read askpass response from 'C:\Users\munoz\.IntelliJIdea2016.3\system\tmp\intellij-git-askpass.bat'
failed to execute prompt script (exit code 1)
could not read Password for 'https://firstname.lastname@example.org': No error
If it can't find my password, I wish it would just ask me again. That would be more reliable than the current behavior.
Another poster, Tim van der Leeuw, fixed this problem by removing the spaces in the path to the temp directory, but I don't have any such spaces. Does anyone know how to fix an intermittent failure like this?
