I have been for the past couple of hours debugging a new error (started after updating some NuGet packages or VS).
Now, after finally being able to see the actual error (Microsoft.NETCore.App 1.1.2 is not compatible with Azure App Service) I got into the actual Startup error I was expecting (invalid connection string), but this screen got my attention:

enter image description here

Now, my questions are:

  1. Why does Azure use Windows 8? Is there any specific reason why they don't use 8.1, 10 or a Server version?
  2. Does it make any difference that the app is hosted on the Free plan?

Why does Azure use Windows 8? Is there any specific reason why they don't use 8.1, 10 or a Server version?

Based on my knowledge, Azure APP service is hosted on Server version. Windows Server 2012 version number is also 6.2. More information please refer to this link.

Client is not suitable for Azure that needs stable operation for a long time. More important, Microsoft does not maintain Windows 8 now. I don't think Azure will select Windows 8 as a host.

  • Well, in that case, why 2012 and not 2012 R2 or 2016? – Camilo Terevinto May 12 '17 at 11:20
  • I find any article, Azure does not provides about this, but I don't think use client. Version number 6.2 is Windows Server 2012. – Shui shengbao May 12 '17 at 11:24
