Windows Azure Tools and Live Framework Tools Refreshed

We’ve just refreshed the MIX releases of the Windows Azure Tools and the Live Framework Tools. The updated versions address an issue that would cause Visual Studio to close unexpectedly if run on specific language editions of Windows (e.g., German). In addition, the Windows Azure Tools refresh includes a fix that allows targeting a different instance…

Just updated my Windows Azure Links page

I’ve just posted an updated set of Windows Azure resources I’ve come across over time. While some of these sites are just getting started (and therefore don’t have much content), I figured I’d include them since they seem to be targeting the Windows Azure space specifically. If I’ve missed any, feel free to contact me (via email…

Windows Azure Links

I’ve decided it’s probably best to have a single page I update with links to good info on Windows Azure from other peers at Microsoft as well as those coming from the community instead of posting individual entries every once in a while. If you know of some links for sites that are focusing on…

Azure community off to a great start…

While we’re busy planning and working on the next release of the tools it seems a vibrant community has begun to rise around Windows Azure and other related services. It’s been really fun to watch this happen as quickly as it has and with great quality. We had been working on all of this for…

Install blocked on Visual Studio SP1?

The Windows Azure Tools for Microsoft Visual Studio runs on top of either Visual Studio 2008 Standard (or above) or Visual Web Developer 2008 Express Edition. However, it requires the SP1 version of these and the installer will block if either of these are not at SP1 level with the following message:  Windows Azure Tools…

User name with spaces?

Turns out there’s a bug in the October CTP of the Windows Azure SDK having to do with user names that contain spaces. It looks like the right folks are on it at this point and it will hopefully get addressed in our next release (still figuring out our release frequency story). The best way…
