Windows Azure Tools: Unable to connect to dfService.

 

Installed the azure 1.5 SDK yesterday. When I tried to start my simple web role on my development fabric it was taking forever and would eventually end with the message: Windows Azure Tools: Unable to connect to dfService.

Apparently the path being used by the csrun.exe to save its state cannot contain spaces, so setting the environmental variable  _CSRUN_STATE_DIRECTORY to a path without spaces solves the problem.
