If you're using the Azure SDK Tools higher than 2.7 and Visual Studio on Windows 7 you may see the following:


The exact error is a System.Net.NetworkInformation.NetworkInformationException of

"Invalid access to memory location". 

According to Microsoft this is caused by: 

A bug in legacy 64-bit operating systems caused the kernel address-conversion routines to incorrectly sign-extended the 32-bit address when converting to a 64-bit address. When the sign-extended memory address was accessed, it caused an Invalid Access to memory location with NativeErrorCode 998 error.

The fix however is super easy. It's fixed in Windows 8, so you should only see this in 7 or below. Here's the link to the hotifix you need. It's a quick install and reboot and you'll be up and running!

Using emulators is a great way to make programs which are not supported by the current OS. This is a great way to make applications running in Linux and all to run smoothly in your windows 7 PC without any glitch or errors. parisguidedtour.com
