Azure Storage: Tables issue with Visual Studio Template


I am having an issue with the "Azure Storage: Tables" quickstart in Visual Studion 2013 Community. I have installed Azure SDK for VS 2013 (V2.6). Anyway, once I create a new app based on this template a few things happen.

The references: "Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Configuration" and "Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Storage" are unresolved. These come with the project and its references
are pointed to there. So it resolves at build.

However I get a runtime error complaining about the following:
Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.Data.OData, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35' or one of its dependencies. The located assembly's manifest definition does not match the assembly reference. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131040)

So this seems to now work the way it should.

If I create a new project.

"Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Configuration" and "Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Storage" and "Microsoft.Data.OData" are not avaliable a new references.


1. So is they some post-configuration tasks I am meant to do after installing the Azure SDK?
2. Are these options meant to be avalible in the general reference list (when I try to add a new reference).
3. How should I fix the issue with the Microsoft.Data.OData error.

you should check that the target plateform (x86,x64..) of your project and the mention on of the mentionned DLL are the same.This erros typically occurs when the plateforms mismatch ( a 32 bit program must link to a 32 bit dll )
