I believe there is a small glitch that causes deployment to azure websites to fail. Please check my blogpost if you experience issues.

I had the exact same issue publishing, the issue has to do with long file names (>260 characters). I renamed my project to a shorter name, then moved my project dir out of C:\Users\[UserName]\Documents\Visual Studio 2013\Projects into c:\vsprojects. I was then able to sync perfectly.

I created a new "Basic Microsoft Azure Express" application, and tried to publish it to my test Azure website. I get the following error:

"------ Publish started: Project: ExpressApp4, Configuration: Release Any CPU ------
Auto ConnectionString Transformed Web.config into obj\Release\CSAutoParameterize\transformed\Web.config.
Copying all files to temporary location below for package/publish:

========== Build: 0 succeeded, 0 failed, 1 up-to-date, 0 skipped ==========
========== Publish: 0 succeeded, 1 failed, 0 skipped =========="

I can publish individual files/folders, except for Web.config and Web.debug.config

I tried with both 1.0 beta 2, and the Aug 13, 2014 dev release. Both result in the same error.

Do the settings in web.debug.config replace the need for a separate iisnode.yml file?
