VIDEO – Azure Function running F5 on localhost

Wanted to share brief for creating a new Azure Function 2.0 on localhost.  Followed quick start wizard within Azure for steps.  Initially received error message pressing F5 but able to resolve by navigate down three folders and run command manually.  Root cause was local PowerShell configuration.   Updating “$profile” to remove Change Directory commands (“CD C:\CODE”) resolved the F5 error with Azure function not starting.

Thank you to @nthonyChu and @fiveisprime for help troubleshooting.   Cheers.  shades_smile
