Publishing from VS 2008 prompting for credentials.

Recently, when trying to publish from within Visual Studio 2008  to  three existing virtual directories, located under an existing site, I was repeatedly prompted for credentials.  This was something I had completed successfully earlier that day.   I tried just about every configuration in Visual Studio to resolve it.

In the end, I had to remove the existing virtual directories and re-publish to allow Visual Studio to create the virtual directories. It seems there is some sort of caching in the Front Page Server Extensions or something. Anyway, deleting them and re-publishing done the trick.
