While setting up my Azure development environment, I cannot start Azure computer emulator when debugging Azure project.
The issue was caused by space in my user name.
To fix this
- Start Windows Azure SDK Command Prompt
- Set the environment variable _CSRUN_STATE_DIRECTORY to an folder which has no space in its name, for example C:\temp by the command line :set _CSRUN_STATE_DIRECTORY=c:\temp
- Start emulator by CSRun.exe /devfabric:start
- Restart VS and run again
