      This sample illustrates the steps towards building an application for Windows Phone, interacting with backend services hosted in Windows Azure. To check for software prerequisites needed to run the samples, run CheckDependencies.cmd in the sample folder once all content is extracted to your local file system. This batch file launches a dependency checking tool that reports any components that are missing in your system, and it provides links if needed for obtaining, installing and configuring the missing components.
