I've written an MVC3 app and am now dealing with the issue of authentication.  I found this blog: http://community.composite.net/C1/Blog.aspx/2011/07/06/Facebook-and-Windows-Live-validation-using-Windows-Azure and followed its directions up until the point where I need to add an "STS Reference" to my app.  I don't have a choice like that.

Does anyone know of a writeup concerning what I'm trying to do?

thanks - e!

I guess you haven't installed all the tools, or haven't done a restart afterwards

From the manual:  install Windows Identity Foundation, restart the computer, and then install Windows Identity Foundation SDK.

(sheepishly) - I needed to restart Windows.  thanks for that.
