I have an existing mvc4 web project which I wanted to deploy to a cloud service and to start using the azure data caching.
I have added the windows azure caching nuget packages to two projects in the solution, the web project and a class library project both of which will need these.
I then add a web role for the web project, and I have updated the datacache identifier reference in the
web.config to point to the web role which is enabled for co located caching.
I can run this locally on the emulator without any problems while I don't have any datacache code. But the moment I put in code to access the datacache is when I have problems. Just this code caused the web project to hang:
var cache = new DataCache("default");
There are not errors that I am aware of, either in the vs output or errors generated from the web application, it just hangs.
What is the best way to start diagnosing where this problem lies?
I have just noticed the following errors generated in the application event log:
Application: CacheServiceEmulator.exe Framework Version: v4.0.30319 Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception.

Does that help track down what is happening?
One other piece of info that may help is that if I create a brand new solution, add a web role and enable co located caching I can get it to work fine -- it just appears something specific to this solution.
The Azure Caching emulator starts logman.exe passing the cnf parameter as 30:00, but logman may reject it if the format is not compatible with your regional settings.
All you have to do, is to change the Long time setting to "HH:mm:ss" and it'll works.
