I have used these tools for some demonstrations recently. The interaction between VSO and Visual Studio works great. However, if you want to interact with Azure then make sure you are using the 2.x version of the SDK.
So far I have had few problems running my web site with Application Insights locally.
One is stated here with workaround.
But I can't disable this extension, not even after running VS2013 as Admin.
I issued the specified command:
PM> Install-Package Microsoft.ApplicationInsights.Log4NetAppender -Version 0.10.0-build17704 -Pre
Successfully added 'Microsoft.ApplicationInsights.Log4NetAppender 0.10.0-build17704' to mypjt.Web.
however - when the webproject runs i see output:
log4net:ERROR Could not create Appender [aiAppender] of type [Microsoft.ApplicationInsights.Log4NetAppender.ApplicationInsightsAppender, Microsoft.ApplicationInsights.Log4NetAppender]. Reported error follows.
System.TypeLoadException: Could not load
references look correct so I'm not sure where to troubleshoot next.
Not in the immediate future. We're now focusing on building up the Azure version of Application Insights. Device apps in that version are a little way down the line yet. http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/dn793604.aspx
I have questions regarding store apps. What's the story in regards to the CPU build selection within VS? I watched a Build session from Channel 9 where x86 was chosen in the demo. Is this just to enable the debug logging or does it mean an app that's currently built and deployed to the store with 'Any CPU' now needs 3 builds and three packages to be uploaded to the store?
The instrumentation being added in the current version is native, so this requires specifying the CPU; this will be fixed in a future update. We are looking to make this fix available in late June or early July. Sorry for the inconvenience.
The newest version of the SDKs, which are supported in the (just released) VS 2012 Update 3 do support Any CPU. However, they also point at the azure preview portal instead of the existing VSO portal, so your data gets routed to a different place.
Unless I'm mistaken, for store apps there's not much benefit in doing this at the moment because the preview portal doesn't support showing telemetry for them at the moment, right? Is there any rough timeline for when this might become available?
Also, I encountered an error whilst adding telemetry to my existing windows store app project - I documented my experience here: http://www.goatly.net/adding-application-insights-to-an-existing-windows-store-project-using-visual-studio-2013-update-3
Getting an error when trying to add to an MVC 5 app.

Please try again later.
After updating the extension to v1.3.2 whenever I open VS 2013 I get a number of errors and the Team Explorer pane shows a generic error and won't load. If I load a solution it throws even more errors as it tries to load projects. I disabled the extension and now everything works fine again. You can view the VS error log with my VS info appended at the bottom at https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=5B8A9A60D4190040!51187&authkey=!ANN575wn8b2sh8A&ithint=file%2c.txt
Strangely enough I just tried re-enabling the extension to get the generic Team Explorer pane error message and everything seems to be working fine now. Still thought I would let you know though so you can investigate.
Now that you've re-enabled it, the extension is working fine?
Nothing in the log jumps out at me, most of the errors there are editor related, and the AI extension does not integrate with the editor. If it happens again, reply with the error that team explorer shows. We do integrate with some of the same things team explorer does, so that would be helpful if you see it again!
