I am trying to access a .htaccess protected test url and I get the following error When i am trying to run the tests in IE

Failed to navigate to http://Username:Password@www.xxxxxx.com/svn/branches/xxxxxx/public_html. This usually means that a call to the COM method IWebBrowser2::Navigate2() failed. (WARNING: The server did not provide any stacktrace information)

The credentials are correct and the tests run fine in FF and chrome

  • You may want to include information about what sort of tests you are running, what tool you are using to execute them, etc.

    Is that a supported feature of IE ? I think that may not be supported on security grounds. Feb 12 '13 at 1:10
