windows azure development storage blob service not starting

Posted by vivekcek on April 7, 2012

When you start the development emulator you got an error like.”The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process“.

The problem is that your blob port 10000 may be used by another program.How to find this program.

Go to command prompt in admin mode.Type

C:\Windows\system32>Netstat /a

Then Type

C:\Windows\system32>netstat -p tcp -ano | findstr :10000

You will get a process id (PID) in the last column:


It means that your PID(1976) listening to this port is 10000. Then you do taklist:

C:\Windows\system32>tasklist /fi “pid eq 1976”


Image Name PID Session Name Session# Mem Usage
========================= ======== ================ =========== ============
uTorrent.exe 1976 Console 1 17,376 K

That means uTorrent.exe is making issue stop it and have a happy life
