Recently steam made some changes in process of adding two-factor authentication to account, in particular, now there is an extra step that requires you to confirm your email address.
Because of this some third-party tools stopped to work normally. They still work for existing accounts, but there is an error when you try to add a new one (because of the extra step mentioned above).
One of such tools is Steam Desktop Authenticator. I made a fix and sent a pull request to developers of SDA and library it's based on, SteamAuth, but it seems those guys don't care about this tool anymore. Because of that I decided to release a fork of SDA, just in case someone still want to use it. You may get it on my github page. In case if original tool will get fixed - I'll just drop this repo for good. I may, or may not, fix it in case of further changes made by Valve, but no promises. And I definitely not going to work on new features/improvements - in case it will annoy me too much it's much more probabe that I will make my own tool with similar functionality.
Giveaways? Oh, come on. I fixed a useful tool for you, and you still expect to find giveaways here? Oh, okay, here is one. But only because I love you all. Maybe bump the thread at least? It's up to you though. [ENDED]

Bump, I don't use that tool but thank you for the ga and the trouble :)
I use that tool .. and i would like to give you some suggestions ... Bump!
Did WinAuth break as well? Not that I really need to add new ones, but at least it's a bump.
As far as I know WinAuth should work. Changes where made in the process of adding a phone number to steam account, both official steam app and SDA do it as a part of adding 2fa process; WinAuth, on the other hand, ask people to do it manually before actually setting up 2fa, and because of that it should not be affected. Probably you can do the same with old SDA - connect your phone manually, then create 2fa with SDA. But it may be not obvious (and I'm not even sure it will work), that's why I wanted to fix it.
I don't use it, but bump for the people who do or plan to!
Thanks a lot. :-)
Bump for your work. I've only ever used WinAuth but hard work is always appreciated!
nice to know something like this exists, just in case they might enforce 2way auth some day...
im using it and thank you
Bump for fixing a seemingly abandoned project, big kudos!
It seems both SDA and WinAuth are abandoned, and there is no other implementation of steam 2fa for windows, so I thought it might be useful. It would have been a better idea to make a new tool from scratch, but I'm too lazy for that (and don't have much time now too).
Bump for saving a great tool. This needs visibility.
Nice, man! Good work!
Thanks for fixing!
