Windows could not start the Enterprise Single Sign-On Service service on Local Computer. Error Code: 0x80131700

Could not create SSOSQL. To fix the problem, reinstall SSO or try 'regasm SSOSQL.dll' from a Visual Studio command prompt.

Error Code: 0x80131700

Re-installing SSO didn’t sound very appealing to me so I tried what the error suggested, which was to re-register the SSO SQL assembly. From the Visual Studio command prompt, you run the following:

regasm "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Enterprise Single Sign-On\SSOSQL.dll"

properties not appearing in windows azure table

i got into an issue recently that while writing a sample azure app, I had to update the azure table with a bunch of properties say name, mobile_num etc along with partitionkey and rowkey. When I run the app, I find that the properties name,mobile_num etc aren’t visible in the table infact they aren’t got updated in the table, but I could see the partitionkey, rowkey and timestamp properties. After a long fight to solve the issue, I figured that in the entity class xxxx(where we define the properties name,mobile_num etc) that derives from tableserviceentity class , I have defined the properties as variables and not as properties. To be precise, I missed get and set functions for the properties I defined. when I add get and set , it worked well.

silly isn’t it?
