Windows Azure MVC 3 Application Database Error

“CREATE DATABASE permission denied in database 'master'”


IIS runs under the Network Service account, which does not have permissions to create a new SQL Server Express database by default. You can comment out the <Sites> section in the ServiceDefinition.csdef file to indicate that your web role should run in the Hosted Web Core, which runs under your authenticated user account, rather than running in IIS, which runs under the Network Service account. We will revert this change later, before deploying to Windows Azure, but for now, make theServiceDefinition.csdef file look like the following:


<WebRole name="AzureRoadTripSite">
<Site nameWeb">

Outlook Integration with SharePoint 2010 (Drag and Drop)

Recently, I was working on one of the SharePoint 2010 tender, User need to drag and drop the email and attachments from Outlook to SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2010 to Outlook. First I thought of propose Colligo outlook integration tool but the CAL licenses seems too expensive for our customer. When I look around I come across following tools.

1.) for SharePoint is an Outlook: (Free for Outlook but limited feature). You can compare Free vs Enterprise edition @

2.) OnePlaceMail : (OnePlace Express is free, but its limited to 25 users, Enterprise need to buy only server license)

3.) Third Sight (Singapore Base company) (I think implemented few government agencies)

4.) Connect for SharePoint :

5.) SharePoint Email filer :

Some of above is server licenses and as well as CAL licenses. Overall I don’t know… if I custom develop using Visual Studio with Outlook Add-In not sure can we meet 50% of above product features?

I think it’s time to explore...
