Why are the role instances taking so long to start?

0 votes
I have rebooted my computer 100s of times this week. When I start / deploy locally 3-4 times, I get this message:

"Windows Azure Tools for Microsoft Visual Studio. Role instances are taking longer than expected to start. Do you want to continue waiting?"

The solution I can see is to going at rebooting again :(

I had encountered this error when I tried to run my application using the Azure Emulator after I created a Windows Identity Foundation Startup Task for my Azure deployment. I needed to change the taskType of the Startup Task from simple to background

ServiceDefinition.csdef

<Startup>
  <Task commandLine="Startup\IdentityGac.cmd" executionContext="elevated" taskType="background"></Task>
</Startup>

Based on your question, I'm not sure if this applies to your project, but I figured it would at least be worth mentioning.
