Disable Welcome. Sign in Visual Studio first start
i want to packetize the software "Visual Studio Premium 2013".
By Starting VS2013 the first time it appears a "Welcome. Sign in...", like in this URL: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/visualstudio/archive/2013/06/28/welcome-sign-in-to-visual-studio.aspx
Is there any possibility to prevent this sign in or is this needed for using some features/user settings and so on ?
Did you ever figure this out? If so, would you mind posting it here? Thanks! - tdickert 7 years ago
We have a Powershell script that activates it in 2015 and 2017, which can also be done from the command line. Is that to what you are referring? - RD94 4 years ago
We'd like to do the same for VS 2017 and 2019, but can not find answers. The answers provided by nahrens and crimsonsoo does not work. RD94, could you share the powershell script or command line that can do batch sign in without getting the pop up welcome sign in window? - CP04 2 years ago
I would also like to avoid welcome sign in and theme selection - is the script still available and works on VS 2019 pro? - EWJ 1 year ago
As @crimsonsoo said, but you also need to copy the settings file:
The issue is, the $version changes every single time you install VS2017, so it will be different for every computer even if you use the exact same installer.
