MIA Azure Demo Shell

Note to self:  Create short names.  MicrosoftIntegrationArchitects.BCSSample.Azure failed to Run the first time through with an error message of so:

Where to start New Project:

Windows Azure Tools: Failed to initialize Development Storage service. Unable to start Development Storage. Failed to start Development Storage: the SQL Server instance ‘localhostSQLExpress’ could not be found. Please configure the SQL Server instance for Development Storage using the ‘DSInit’ utility in the Windows Azure SDK.
 Moved to my local instace:
Copy and paste this into a command window.  [Start->run] Type CMD in run then OK.
“C:Program FilesWindows Azure SDKv1.2bindevstoreDSInit.exe” /sqlInstance:.

First Test (Not the URL came up as :5051)  investigated port change, to see if my last implementation was somehow blocking the use of that port.
I ran IISReset [Start->Run] Type IISRESET and then hit OK,  used “Start Debugging” and the site came up properly.
Done for the morning.
