If Windows Azure Cmdlets v1.3 Won’t Install

I downloaded the latest Windows Azure Cmdlets to manage my cloud storage at http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/azurecmdlets.  However, it could find my installed Azure SDK v1.3.

If running the “C:\WASMCmdlets\startHere.cmd” fails to find the “Windows Azure Software Development Kit 1.3” on the “Detecting Required Software” screen, it is because it is looking for version 1.3.11122.0038 of the SDK. However, my installed version is 1.3.20121.1237. So, I opened the “C:\WASMCmdlets\setup\scripts\dependencies\check\CheckAzureSDK.ps1” file and changed the two “1.3.11122.0038” values to “1.3.20121.1237” and re-ran startHere.cmd.

To find out what version of the Azure SDK you have installed, look in your registry at “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Windows Azure SDK\DisplayVersion”.
