Get-AzureWebsite: Requested value ‘VS2015’ was not found.

I was working with Azure PowerShell and suddenly I started getting an error of “‘VS2015’ was not found” every time I ran Get-AzureWebsite for one of my sites.  All of my other sites were fine.

I did some searching and I found a couple of blog posts that pointed me to remote debugging being on.  I turned it off but I was still getting the error.  After much fumbling around, I went back to Remote debugging, and turned it on, but for Remote Visual Studio version of 2013. And my PowerShell started working again!


I was then able to turn it off again and my script was still working. I assume that my site got stuck in a weird state, but toggling this setting made it all work again.

Remote debugging will stay enabled for 48 hours if you don’t turn it off.

    Is there any way to remove old folders from azure? When I delete a folder from my local and deploy project, it is not removing from Azure.
