Not running in a hosted service or the Development Fabric (Production, not debug/local)

Im just getting started with Windows Azure and have got a small MVC application running locally using the Azure emulator. I signed up for a free trial, downloaded my publishing profile and imported it into VS2012. Published to Azure and got some assembly reference errors. I resolved this by setting them to copy local = true and now i get:

    Not running in a hosted service or the Development Fabric.

If seen this error if you are testing locally and have set the web project as the startup project rather than the cloud project, but as I say, this works fine locally against the emulator, but deploying into Azure causes this to fail.

Any ideas what I'm missing here?

Thanks

Set the Windows Azure Role project as the "Startup" project. This solved my problem. I encountered the same issue when I set another webapp in the same solution as startup project.


Try deleting the Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Diagnostics.DiagnosticMonitorTraceListener trace listener configuration in your web.config. See this related SO post. DotNetOpenAuth.Logger seems to conflict with WAD (windows azure diagnostics).

Remove trace listener from web.config:
<trace> 
    <listeners> 
        <add type="Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Diagnostics.DiagnosticMonitorTraceListener, Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Diagnostics, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35" name="AzureDiagnostics"> 
            <filter type="" /> 
        </add> 
    </listeners> 
</trace>
