Wanting to deploy to Azure using Continuous Delivery but not use the Visual Studio Hosted Build servers?
No problem; but you need to install the right version of things first!
- VS 2012 with Update 4
- VS 2013
- Azure SDK 2.0 and 2.2 for both 2012 and 2013 (using Web Platform Installer)
- Azure SDK Libraries for 2.0 (from here http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=38797)

If you don't do this, you get an error during the deployment portion of the workflow.
If you try it, let me know how you get on!
