RAD “Invalid thread access” errors when accessing CVS

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

With its default settings, RAD 7.5 seems to be unable to remember CVS passwords. It also gives you a lot of “Invalid thread access” errors when accessing CVS.

To get around this, go to Window -> Preferences and then to General -> Security -> Secure Storage. Uncheck the “Windows Integration” checkbox.

You will now be prompted for a master password. From this point onwards, when you enter a CVS password and check “save password”, the password will be encrypted with the master password and RAD will properly remember it. Note that RAD will periodically prompt you for the master password, so make sure it’s something you can remember!
