I am following the instructions from (https://medium.com/@ConsenSys/solidity-integration-with-visual-studio-8bdab2ff8a74#.k2y18h96h) to use the solidity extension (version 18.104.22.168) through Visual Studio.
I am not able to deploy the sample contract and I get the following error:
key server not available
Error Text Below
Deployment to http://localhost:8000/ started!
User used for deployment: testuser
User found: 
Please check if keyserver is running. If keyserver is running and deploy is failing due to insufficient gas, delete the user folder on key server and a new user will automatically be created
Also, while I was starting the initializing the bloc application using the command
bloc init, I did not get the confirmation that the keyserver is listen. After running the
block init the command simply moves to the next line without any error or confirmation.
Both the things could be related, but not sure. Help please.
