How to: Enable Windows Azure Tools

The Windows Azure SDK for .NET helps you create, configure, build, debug, run, and package scalable Web applications and services on Windows Azure

You can download the Windows Azure SDK from the New Project dialog box.


Your computer might show different names or locations for some of the Visual Studio user interface elements in the following instructions. The Visual Studio edition that you have and the settings that you use determine these elements. For more information, see Customizing Development Settings.

To enable the Windows Azure SDK

  1. On the File menu, create a new project. (Click New and then click Project.)

  2. Expand the node for either Visual Basic or C# and then click Cloud.

  3. In the middle pane, select Get Windows Azure SDK for .NET, and then click OK.

    Follow the instructions in the installer.


    To install the Windows Azure Tools, you must have Internet Information Services 7.0 and the ASP.NET Application Development components installed. If these components are not installed, Windows Azure Tools Setup will prompt you to install them.
