The September 2011 release includes the following components in one simple installer. Click here to download and install. (I had a previous version of the SDK installed. The installer automatically removed it and then install the current version.)

  • Windows Azure Tools for Microsoft Visual Studio*
  • Windows Azure SDK
  • Visual Web Developer 2010, if you do not have Visual Studio 2010
  • ASP.Net MVC3
  • Windows Azure AppFabric SDK

To learn how to create Windows Azure applications, I recommend that you start with the Windows Azure platform training kit (September 2011 Update). You can download it here.
