Change Personalization Account

    Question

  • When I first set up Visual Studio Community 2015 it created a Personalization Account with my work account. 

    The account seems linked to my pc somehow, and I can't change it.

    I've tried uninstalling and reinstall and removing accounts from registry and appdata resetting with devenv /resetuserdata and visual studio keeps signing back into my work account. 

    Please help all i want to do is set it up with my personal windows live account but I can't!

    Thanks

    After trying for hours I figured it out.

    I had to go into windows 10 settings app > account and remove the work account, next time I started Visual Studio I could sign into my personal account and the correct visual studio profile showed up. 

    Hallelujah.
