Yesterday I was trying to configure my application for Azure ACS and I was not able to find the option “Identity and Access…” for my web role application.
To get this menu option enabled for a web site, web role project you need to install Identity and AccessTool.
This tool can be installed for Visual Studio 2012 from the link or it can be installed as a part of Extension and Updates from visual studio 2012.
I installed it and restarted visual studio got below mentioned error –
The ‘IdentityAndAccessVSPackage’ package did not load correctly
When I went to the location mentioned in above screenshot found following specific error –
SetSite failed for package [IdentityAndAccessVSPackage]
Following are the steps to be taken to resolve the error –
1. Uninstall IdentityAndAccessVSPackage if already installed. This can be uninstalled from Extension and Updates menu as shown below.
2. Change the framework to 4.5 for web project. Currently 4 or 4.5.1 will not work.
3. Install WIF SDK from the link –
Make sure to install 3.5 and 4 version of WIF SDK.
Once all of the above steps are performed you can see the option of “Identity and Access as shown below –
Hope this helps.
