StorageClientException error

May 19, 2011 at 7:44 PM


I followed the video exactly and installed all prerequests and then i created a new windows phone 7 cloud application project 


When I try to run it, it keeps throwing StorageClientException. 


I have not modified the project in any way.  Just created it and tried to run it.

Can you confirm that you entered the correct Storage Account Name and Key in the wizard?  Or are you using the local storage emulator?

I am using local storage emulator.  Just as in the tutorial video here.

Can you try resetting your local storage emulator as shown under "Upgrading the Authorization Data from Older Versions of the Toolkit" -

I tried that resetting the local storage emulator before, and i tried it again just now. 

Somehow, it is still throwing the exception.  

A colleague of mine has tried the same thing on his computer and he is getting the exception as well.
