Attempting to rename Service Config file throws exception in Azure Tools


  • I work on an Azure-hosted ASPNET website project that was first developed years ago. Right now the project is in VS2010.

    Ran into an exception in the tools while trying to update the project to use latest SDK & host operating system.  Trying to rename a ServiceConfiguration.cscfg file causes Visual Studio to report an exception:

        Provide value on 'System.Windows.StaticResourceExtension' threw an exception.

    I actually have two branches of this project.  One branch was not a big problem to update.  But before I tried to update the other branch I installed the latest Azure SDK for VS2012 (I'm planning to mirgrate).  So I thought that might be the reason this started happening.

    I tried reinstalling "Windows Azure Tools for Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 - v2.1" but that had no effect.

    Anyone run into this?
