Can you provide some more details? Are you storing/serving the word document from blob storage or your role? Are there more than 1 instance running for your role? How are you uploading the document? What's the error message you're getting?
According to Gaurav's post, please provide more details about the exception message and how does it was thrown, i believe it's will help us fix it.
"How to download a word document by clicking on a hyperlink for a web application deployed on Azure", my guess it's Azure VM does not install office components for your hosted service defaultlt, so the application on cloud environment
can not work, you can consider VM role, install Office components with VM role should works for you situation.
I have a custom asp application which uses remote scripting with the files rs.htm/ rs.asp/ and others found in _scriptLibrary under the project.
is there any configurations that need to be set to allow remote scripting on azure platform or is it not supported at all?
Though I don't have great exposure to remote scripting, but, looking at the error the first thought that comes to my mind is to verify if the copy always property of the script folder and all its contents is set to true or not. If not, try setting it to
true for all the required files and script folder.
And, if the issue still persists, one thing that I can suggest is to use the remote desktop feature and examine the event logs in the VM. It will give more details on the exact issue.
