When you use a Microsoft 2007 Office application that takes advantage of multiple network stacks, you may have to enter credentials multiple times. This behavior occurs even when you click to select the Remember my password check box.
This problem may occur if an application that uses multiple HTTP stacks connects to a Windows Live ID gated server. For example, an application may use the WinInet stack for direct Internet access and the WinHTTP stack through Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV). These applications may have to authenticate a user one time for each HTTP stack. Microsoft 2007 Office applications are an example of this kind of application.
