A faster way to install Azure bits (updated)
Having recently discovered that this Azure thing is just about ready for actual release, I have picked it up. So after spending an evening installing everything needed to run samples and tutorials, Microsoft releases version 1.5 of the SDK and I have to reinstall everything.
Voicing my angst about this on Twitter I got an answer from the newly appointed Evangelist Thiago Almeida: There is a better way, use Web Platform Installer!
Just point your browser to the Windows Azure Team blog here and off you go. Using this tool you can even install separate labs and it detects dependencies and lets you install them
Now if we can just get them to release a VHD-file as well.
