Using Azure Storage SDK outside of Azure

When trying to access the Azure Storage SDK in a non-Azure application I kept getting the following error:


“The type or namespace name ‘WindowsAzure’ does not exist in the namespace ‘Microsoft’ (are you missing an assembly reference?)    “


References to Microsoft.WindowsAzure.ServiceRuntime and Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient were both already included as references to the assembly that was trying to store data in a table. After a bit of investigation the reason for the error was that the assembly was set to have the target framework of “.Net Framework 4 Client Profile”. Changing to “.Net Framework 4” solved the problem.
