How do I prevent a "No supported authentication methods available" error when using TortoiseHg?

How do I prevent a "No supported authentication methods available" error when using TortoiseHg?

I'm trying out Mercurial for the first time but am having problems doing a push/pull/clone with a remote server (in this case it's codebasehq.com) when using TortoiseHg.

"Clocked it. I needed to create an ssh-key pair. To do this I opened puttygen.exe and generated a key. Then I run pageant.exe and added the generated key to its list. The final stage was to log in to codebasehq and add the text of the key (from the box in puttygen labelled 'Public key for pasting...') to my profile.

Hope this helps someone.

(I'm going to accept my own answer but if someone can come up with a more concise answer I'll happily accept yours instead)"

"I had the same problem. I use Git Extensions on windows.
My solution was a little different tough. Instead of using the ssh repo, I used the http URL.

Something Like:
{user}@bitbucketdotorg/{owner}/{name}.git"
