Create rep.xml File to Store Repository Credentials

The rep.xml file lets you store repository credentials so you do not have to connect to the repository every time after launching Datamaker. You may want to create a new rep.xml file to allow this functionality or because you are experiencing error messages like 'System.Exception: rep.xml information not found in DM directory" and want to resolve them.
