Microsoft released an updated Windows Azure Software Development Kit (SDK). This refresh of the Nov'2010 SDK (SDK 1.3) resolves an issue that affects applications developed using SDK v1.3.

"This issue affects apps developed using ASP.NET and using the new "Full IIS" feature of SDK v1.3 that've a Web Role deployed. "Web Role" is defined as a single HTTP endpoint and a single HTTPS endpoint for external clients. This is not to be confused with the "Worker Role," which's defined as up to five external endpoints using HTTP, HTTPS or TCP. Each external endpoint defined for a role must listen on a unique port."

Applying the fix

  1. Download and install the refresh of the November 2010 Tools and SDK (recommended).
  2. To upgrade just the SDK, use this link (64 bit) or this link (32 bit)

After you've applied the fix, you'll have to re-package your service and then upgrade or re-deploy your service in the cloud.

Verifying applied fix

  • Check the version number of 'Windows Azure SDK' after upgrading to this refresh, as displayed under 'Programs and Features.' It should be 1.3.20121.1237.
