Services stall and eventually freeze

May 6, 2011 at 3:23 PM

When I launch the sample app, when I try to access the various azure services in the solution (running in the local emulators) from the browser or from the phone emulator, the app stalls for a long time, and the eventual outcome is sometimes the expected behavior (user registered, logged in or out), or, often the machine freezes (screen goes dark) and eventually crashes (blue screen) - or not.

I once managed to get to the point where I had a registered user, I logged into the phone app, went back to browser and logged in as admin to assign permissions to the user, but then back in the phone app when I tried to create a new table the freezing occured (I thought the machine was going to crash) then recovered and an "Unexpected internal storage client error" was caught in the RoleProviderWrapper class :
