Error: Authentication failed due to invalid password.

Hi everybody, I wonder if you could help me?

I was debugging my application in the simulator. It was working properly, but suddenly I started getting this error. ( "Error: Authentication failed due to invalid password.")


I have not changed any settings, and with no reason, I started getting this error. And from that moment, I could not run this application anymore.

Could you tell me what might be happening?

Re: Error: Authentication failed due to invalid password.

Make sure that the password has not mysteriously disappeared from the device config in FB. Also make sure the checkbox for saving your password setting is checked. Good luck.

Re: Error: Authentication failed due to invalid password.

I just changed the password for the simulator and it is working again This is very strange, but at least there is a solution.

Thanks for the help.
