More reminders / gotchas from the trenches with Azure

I've been working on setting up my VPC for Azure's March CTP.  This is a fresh install.  I had everything installed.  Here are a couple of gotchas that you have to remember:

  • SqlExpress needs to be running.  I had the .\SqlExpress service turned off in my archived vpc.  With the service off, the dev tools can't see the database service so they fail.
  • Create TablesA database can be setup by right clicking on your cloud service and selecting "Create Test Storage Tables."
  • With a new installation, windows communication foundation (WCF) is most likely not setup.  You may need to setup calls to WCF.  To setup WCF, you may need to login as an Administrator and run "ServiceModelReg -i"
