Windows Azure SDK Tools on Windows Server 2008 R2 (x64)

Reading various blogs, books and documentation on Windows Azure development will lead you to the Azure specific tools such as csypack, csencrypt and their friends. However, most of them points to the wrong PATH in your Windows installation as to the location of those Azure specific tools in Azure SDK June 2012. In Azure SDK June 2012 installation on Windows Server 2008 R2 x64, the path of those Azure specific tools is:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows Azure\.NET SDK\2012-06>
instead of the path mostly mentioned in tutorials or books, i.e.
C:\Program Files\Windows Azure\xxx

I hope this helps those who starts developing on Windows Azure and longing to know where the Azure specific tools are located on default Azure SDK installation.
