I am practicing for Window Azure Cache.
I have created name space in Windows Azure Management Portal.
 Then use client configuration detail in App.Config file of Window Application.
I have created Window App,which  contain one class having different methods which i called on click of button from code file. 
But I received error mentioned in question at  DataCacheFactory cacheFactory = new DataCacheFactory();, this is written in public Form1(), default constructor of form.
My configuration file is as below:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
    <section name="dataCacheClient" type="Microsoft.ApplicationServer.Caching.DataCacheClientSection, Microsoft.ApplicationServer.Caching.Core"
         allowLocation="true" allowDefinition="Everywhere"/>
  <dataCacheClient >
      <host name="" cachePort="22233" />
    <securityProperties mode="Message">
    <supportedRuntime version="v4.0" sku=".NETFramework,Version=v4.0"/>
I have add the references :
Import the namespace:
using Microsoft.ApplicationServer.Caching;
That's it. Now when i run application, I got Error.
If any one know the solution please help me out.

I have replied a similar thread at:

Please check it and see whether it helps.

Windows Azure AppFabric cache only works for Windows Azure applications. It doesn't work for a Windows application, or an ASP.NET application that is not a web role. This makes sence, as if your application is not hosted in the cloud, storing cache data on a remote server will only slow you down rather than give you performance advantages. If you want to use cache locally, you can use Windows Server AppFabric cache.
