SQL Server Management Studio, 2008 R2 does not bring up dialog for "New Login"

I am trying to set up new login within SQL Server Management Studio 2008 R2 on a new windows Azure server.

When I expand "Security" then right click "Logins" and select "New Login..", the following query page appears:

-- ===============================================
-- Create SQL Login template for SQL Azure Database
-- ===============================================

CREATE LOGIN <SQL_login_name, sysname, login_name> 
	WITH PASSWORD = '<password, sysname, Change_Password>' 
GO

Open in new window


However instead of this appearing I would like a dialog winodw to appear which is what I am normally used to.

Are there any settings I can apply to make this happen?

I do not have access to one, but it seems that instead of the Graphical User Interface that you are used to, it provides you with the instructions as to the query to be used

create login newusername with password='loginpassword'

I have since found out the server is in fact using Windows Azure which has taken over a lot of the SQL Server controls. I couldn't even restore from a backup file as we need to use the migration tools instead.

This probably affects the post.
