Try this.

I solved this problem by the clearing Visual Studio Component Model Cache. Just delete or rename this folder:

Tried it - but no success.

The trick seems to be for VS2012 - I'm using VS2013.

Maybe this will help.

The build of Azure SDK 2.6 is now available, but it may not have propagated to all download servers yet.

You can run the Web Platform Installer and if you don’t have the new build installed, it should allow you to install 2.6 again.  But it might not if you are accessing a download server that doesn’t have the new bits yet.  If WebPI doesn't allow you to install 2.6 again, then wait a few hours and try again.

The build number for the version with the fixes is build 2.6.30508.1601. You can identify the build of the SDK from Control Panel -> Programs and Features -> Microsoft Azure Tools for Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 – v 2.6. The Version column will display the build number.
