I have a simple LightSwitch 2012 application that I am trying to deploy to Azure. The deployment is successful, however when I try to access the site I am getting the following error.

Load operation failed for query 'GetAuthenticationInfo'. The remote server returned an error: Not Found.

I have tried re-creating the site on Azure, and then re-deploying with similar results

here is the sample application

This is actually a default error that lightswitch throws in a number of cases.
To get to the actual issue you can use Fiddler (a free download) to see what the actual error is.
If you could provide an URL where the site is located I can try to connect to it and retrieve the error that is hidden underneath.
I've had a similar issue with my lightswitch application that was on a shared host which I finally got resolved by upgrading my project to V2.

ok, I'll have a look at it later when I'm at home, as I can't use fiddler here at work (blocked by the firewall).
What version of LightSwitch is your application in?

this is running LS2012
I have a solution built using the Component One Lightswitch Scheduler, but since I've had trouble deploying, I created a simple application.

here is what I'm getting when I run fiddler

It looks like this the exact same issue I had with my website.
What I did to fix it is upgrade visual studio to the latest update (udate 3 IIRC) and then upgraded my lightswitch application.

I upgraded the project, and was able to successfully publish the site. When I navigate to the url, I get a 403 error. If I add login.aspx to the end of the url, it will successfully authenticate, but then I get a 404 resource not found when it tries to redirect to default.aspx

the url is
vfieventmanager.azurewebsites.net

vfimanager/LogMeIn123!

thanks,
Jason

Hi, have you added a /Client at the end of your url to navigate to your client project?
In the new version of LightSwitch multiple clients are possible (silverlight and html) and the silverlight client by default is put in "Client".

So to start your application it would normally look something like vfieventmanager.azurewebsites.net/Client

When I use above URL I immediately get to  the application without the need of a login apparantly.
