I'm setting up a new Windows workstation for development, having previously used a MacBook, and find that I cannot clone some repositories from Github although I can see them.
With same credentials, I can still fully access them on the MacBook, from IntelliJ and other tools.
Some other repositories can be accessed from IntelliJ on the new Windows workstation.
And the repository that fails, I can access it using SourceTree - I can clone it, then use IntelliJ to work on it and commit files, then have to use SourceTree again to push to it.
I have no idea what the cause of the problem is, and why there's a problem with some but not with other Github repositories.
The error message which I get is:
Failed with error: error: unable to read askpass response from 'D:\Users\Tim van der Leeuw\AppData\Local\Temp\git-askpass-0.bat' error: failed to execute prompt script (exit code 1) fatal: could not read Password for 'https://email@example.com': No error
(Or 'Clone failed', or 'Fetch failed', etc, depending on the action which I tried)
I'm not actually asked for a password, so it could be a failure to open this batchfile - perhaps due to spaces in the path? - but then, I had no problems with another repository.
I'd appreciate any help on what is wrong with my setup.
IntelliJ versions tried: 14.1.5, 15EAP IU-143.249.6
