Sample Website Error

Jan 20, 2012 at 10:32 PM

Hi:

I am trying out the sample website after adding my azure account info and when I try to execute the create table code I get the following error:

The input is not a valid Base-64 string as it contains a non-base 64 character, more than two padding characters, or an illegal character among the padding characters.

Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.FormatException: The input is not a valid Base-64 string as it contains a non-base 64 character, more than two padding characters, or an illegal character among the padding characters.

Source Error:

Line 7:      if (IsPost) {                
Line 8:          // Remove table if it already exists
Line 9:          if (WindowsAzureStorage.TableExists("NewSampleTable")) {
Line 10:             WindowsAzureStorage.DeleteTable("NewSampleTable");
Line 11:         }
