VIP - Microsoft Credential Provider Plug-in - Cannot browse to configuration file
Last Updated June 23, 2016
When installing the Microsoft Credential Provider Plug-in there is a window in the wizard that asks to browse to the configuration file. When clicking "Browse" nothing happens and installation cannot continue.
No error messages are shown, however the explorer window does not open to browse to the file so installation cannot continue.
This issue can occur if the required Visual C++ components are not installed. Please note the following requirements for Microsoft Credential Provder
