Development Page, Project Designer (Azure Tools)

Updated: February 5, 2014

You can specify publishing, execution, debugging, and package validation settings from the Development page of the Project Designer.

Configuration
You can’t change the value of this control from this page.

Platform
You can’t change the value of this control from this page.

These settings apply when you publish your application to Azure.

Prompt before deleting an existing deployment.
If this setting is set to true, you can cancel a deployment after you initiate it if that deployment would delete an application that you’ve already deployed.

These settings apply when you run or debug your application.

Display the Microsoft Azure debugging environment dialog
If this setting is set to true, a dialog box appears while the emulation environment is being set up to debug your application. This dialog box shows progress as the emulators and debuggers are being configured. You can cancel the operation from this dialog box and select a check box to hide the dialog box. If you hide it, you can still see status information in the status bar near the bottom of the Visual Studio window.

Service Configuration
From this control, you can specify configuration settings for Azure applications. These values correspond to service configuration files (.cscfg files), and you can specify Local or Cloud by default. The Local service configuration is used when the application runs on the local computer with the emulators that simulate the Azure environment. The Cloud service configuration is used when the application runs in the actual Azure environment. If you define additional service configurations, they will appear in this control as options. For information about how to rename or define your own service configurations, see How to: Manage Service Configurations and Profiles.

Start Microsoft Azure Storage Emulator
From this control, you can specify whether to start the storage emulator when running this project. If you set this setting to false and your application requires storage services, you must start the storage emulator manually if it’s not already running. For more information, see Accessing the Azure Storage Services. You can determine whether the storage emulator is running if you point to the Azure icon in the Windows taskbar or by looking for the DSSQLService.exe process in the Windows Task Manager.

Use web project ports
This setting applies only when using IIS Express and running locally. If set to true, the port used is determined by the Project Url setting in the Web tab of a web role's properties. If set to false, the port might change each time you run the project.

These settings apply when your package is validated.

Treat warnings as errors
From this control, you can specify whether you want to deploy your application even if one or more warnings occurred when your package was validated. These warnings have codes that start with WAT. This setting doesn’t relate to any other warnings, such as compiler warnings. For more information, see Troubleshooting Package Validation Warnings and Errors.
