Scroll bar is not displayed when you use a custom credential provider in Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012

Gilt für: Windows 8Windows 8 EnterpriseWindows 8 Pro

Symptoms


Assume that you have a custom credential provider that enumerates more tiles than can fit on the screen on a computer that is running Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012. In this situation, the scroll bar is not displayed until you tap or click another tile in the user tiles list.

Note The scroll bar is displayed on the bottom of the screen that the credential user tile lists.

Cause


This issue occurs because of a code defect in LogonUI.exe that disables horizontal scrolling when a selected hardware credential provider is removed.
