My previous blogpost shows you how to create a Visual Studio Development Virtual Machine in Azure. When you don’t have a MSDN subscription it turns out you get an exception when you create the Virtual Machine, based on the image with Visual Studio 2015, Azure SDK 2.9 and Windows 10. The exception comes up both in the portal and with PowerShell.
There are multiple possibilities to create a development environment with Visual Studio on Azure. It can be created manually in the Azure Portal or programmatic with PowerShell.
