LocalRunDataRoot & Visual Studio

    Question

  • I have a Visual Studio 2015 Community Edition that I am using to develop a U-SQL project. It appears that under the menu option Data Lake -> Options and Settings -> Azure Data Lake -> General, local run dataroot seems to be read-only and it defaults to a C:\LocalRunDataRoot folder. I think I need to change this before submitting a job as it errors out since I don't have a c drive. Could you suggest a workaround for that in short of mapping a c drive? Thanks!

    We are exploring two things that will help:

    (1) picking a more reasonable default. For example a path in the users "my documents" folder.

    (2) offering the ability to change the path

    There's no workaround now, unfortunately.

  • Here is a temporary workaround that you can try to move forward:

    1. Exit VisualStudio

    2. Use a text editor (eg. notepad) to open:  Your_system_drive:\Users\your_account\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\DataLake\IDE.config

    Look for <USqlLocalRunMetaDataDirectory>  and change the path string there to whatever you want.   Please note that there's a limitation of maximum allowed path string length around 79 characters.
