Failed to Initialize Windows Azure

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi to everyone!

I have SQL Express installed for Microsoft Visual Studio, but I still get this error message. I don't understand why the initialization failed and  I don't know where else to poke about. Can anybody help with this error? I'm indebted to you for your help. Thanks.

Failed to Initialize Windows Azure


Hi LHeathCoat,

This error might be occurring because your SQL is not yet enabled. You need to execute the 'dsinit /sqlInstance'. You can enable it by running the ‘service.msc’ administrative tool. Click on start and then run, type service.msc and then press enter.

In the dialog that will show up next, choose the standard option and locate sql from the list of services. You can point the arrow on the list and just press s on your keyboard to locate sql easily. If the service is disabled, enable it.
For complete instructions on how to go about this, visit this link.

Hope this helps.

Lee Hung.

Failed to Initialize Windows Azure



The error that pop-up to your screen is the default setting of your Microsoft Visual Studio, then to fix this to your Microsoft Visual studio, simply follow my step below:

• Go to start menu and then run the command prompt and then steer or type this C:Program FilesWindows Azure SDKv1.4bindevstore (depending on your Azure version, the file path is slightly different.)
• After that just type this: DSInit /sqlInstance:  Then you need to change the name of the SQL server.
• After you rename the SQL server, and just wait to process the system, after that you will see this seem to your screen.
