Azure Storage Emulator shows error.

0 votes

I am trying to initialize Azure Storage Emulator in SQL Server 2014 as follows:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows Azure\Storage Emulator>.\wastorage
emulator init -server MY-PC
Windows Azure Storage Emulator 3.0.0.0 command line tool
The storage emulator was successfully initialized and is ready to use.

I am getting the following error:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows Azure\Storage Emulator>.\wastorage
emulator start
Windows Azure Storage Emulator 3.0.0.0 command line tool

Unhandled Exception: System.TimeoutException: Unable to open wait handle.
   at Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Storage.Emulator.Controller.EmulatorProcessControll
er.InternalWaitForStorageEmulator(Int32 timeoutInMilliseconds)
   at Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Storage.Emulator.Controller.EmulatorProcessControll
er.EnsureRunning(Int32 timeoutInMilliseconds)
   at Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Storage.Emulator.StartCommand.RunCommand()
   at Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Storage.Emulator.Program.Main(String[] args)

Can someone please help I can't figure it out :(

This blog might help with your query: http://blog.smarx.com/posts/windows-azure-storage-emulator-the-process-cannot-access-the-file-because-it-is-being-used-by-another-process

Also, check if you are running BitTorrent/uTorrent or similar software using port 10000.

In case that post disappears, the command to check if any other software is using that port is:

C:\Users\smarx>netstat -p tcp -ano | findstr :10000
  TCP    127.0.0.1:10000        0.0.0.0:0              LISTENING       3672
