My Windows Azure subscription can't use Websites?

I started playing around with an ASP.NET MVC5 website that I wanted to deploy to Windows Azure.


For this I followed a very basic and simple tutorial at But when I came to the step to create a new site on Windows Azure (step 9) I got the following error-message:

—————————————- Microsoft Visual Studio —————————————-
This subscription is not registered to use the following resources: Website. The remote server returned an unexpected response: (400) Bad Request.
—————————————- OK —————————————-

Remark: You know, that you can copy the text of a MessageBox in Windows just by pressing CTRL-C, right? ;)


I have my Windows Azure subscription based on my MSDN account and of course I can create websites... And yes, I was logged in with my VS2013 into Visual Studio Online.


The solution

After some playing around I logged in into Windows Azure via the normal web browser and voila ... I tried again and the message was gone... I wonder, what this changed or if that has something to do with me using Chrome as my default browser?


Somehow this is using the browser (and maybe its cookies?) to communicate with Windows Azure?
