Cannot Install Kendo UI from Bower


Product Progress® Kendo UI® for jQuery
NodeJS 7.10.0
NPM 4.2.0
Bower Version 1.8.0


I use Git Credential Manager. After it prompts for my username and password, Bower authentication fails with the Authentication failed error message, and I am not able to install Kendo UI.  


Use a bower.json file with the credentials as part of the URL. Encode both the password and the credentials.

Actual Username:
Encoded Username: 

Actual Password: $password!
Encoded Password: %24password%21

As a result, the bower.json file reads https://[EncodedUsername]:[EncodedPassword]
