Facebook APIs seem to be returning empty datasets for "real" users when called from Azure servers - have I missed something in my configuration?

I'm trying to remember which of these photos were taken on my phone, with a GPS tag, compared with the majority which were taken on my camera without - and therefore how Google knows...

So turns out that the #Azure Compute Emulator (and Visual Studio 2015's Diagnostic tools) are very fragile when it comes to path lengths. We've been fighting with the Compute emulator constantly cycling our web role between "Starting - Busy - Unhealthy" while the worker role has been fine. Setting a file system junction to the root of the solution in a much shorter path seems to have solved the problem.

It didn't help that the solution works fine when deployed to Azure, and confused us with the worker role working - which leads me to think it's not necessarily the length to the root that's the issue, but something within the project (I'm looking at you npm)...

Trying to make consistent PCL nuget packages on different environments - one generates a lib folder containing "portable-Profile259", while another generates a lib folder containing "portable-net45 win wpa81 wp80 MonoAndroid10 xamarinios10 MonoTouch10".

Is there a "minimum" amount of the Azure SDK that I can install without installing a copy of Visual Studio on my build servers?

The "Microsoft Build Tools 2015"  work nicely without the overhead of Visual Studio on the build agent, but I can't see what the minimum components are that will include the build targets, etc.

I seem to have worked it out if anyone else has the same issue.

My kids had great fun at the Star Wars art workshop this morning, funny and encouraging staff working really nicely with a full room of kids - looking forward to seeing what the next theme is. Glad we'd booked though as it was completely full!
