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.
- A database can be setup by right clicking on your cloud service and selecting "Create Test Storage Tables."
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"
