10 ### Why doesn't it work?
11 Make sure you're running the latest version of msysgit. The credential API is fairly new. I've tested this on version 1.7.10.

16 ### Where are you storing my credentials?
17 This app just uses the existing Windows Credential Store to hold your credentials. You can see the stored credentials by going to Control Panel > User Accounts > Credential Manager and choosing "Windows Credentials". The entries starting "git:" are from git-credential-winstore.
