"Add Windows Azure Cloud Service Project" menu item - VS Ultimate

Apr 13, 2013 at 7:56 PM
I've been spending all day trying to get the "Add Windows Azure Cloud Service Project" menu item to appear. I even saw the other thread about this and installed a free trial of VS Ultimate 2012. I have also installed the Azure Python SDK and Python Tools for Visual Studio (tried both 1.5 and 2.0, neither worked). Any ideas why this isn't working?

Sorry, this looks like it’s a little painful on VS 2012. I think that command is provided by “Windows Azure Tools for Visual Studio.” If you go to the downloads page ( it’s not entirely clear how to get just that, but if you download the .NET SDK I believe it includes those tools.

Another roundabout way to get the right download would be to do File->New Project and choose the Cloud project under C#.

Yep! That worked, thanks!
