Resolving mRemoteNG Password prompt issue:
mRempteNG stores all the connection list in the file “%userprofile%/AppData/Roaming/mRemoteNG/conf/Cons.xml”. Rename this file and open and close mRemoteNG. It will create a new, empty connection file. Open the old file and copy all of the “Node” lines to the new file between the two “Connections” lines. Save the new file and start mRemoteNG. It should no longer as you for a password and your connections should be there. If you had passwords saved for your connections, they may no longer work so you may need to reenter them.
