Azure Websites Allowed APIs

    Question

  • I understand that Azure Websites are full trust, (which is fantastic ) and that it uses some kind of 'new' virtualization technology that prevents using certain win32 APIs as reported in other threads here.

    My question is this: Which APIs or subsystems are allowed? Our particular issue is using GDI to extract font data, it works fine as web role, but not as website. Is there a guide to what operations are allowed on azure websites?

    Thanks.

  • There is some high level information on this page. As you point out, GDI is probably the main thing that is not supported.

    If you run into something else that doesn't work and doesn't seem to be related to GDI, please let us know.
