Installing Visual Studio Tools for Applications 2012 after getting Compatibility mode error

I went to use the developer tab of InfoPath 2013 and it told me that I needed to download the Visual Studio Tools for Applications 2012.  They were even nice enough to include a link!

When I went to I had to setup a new account (That came with a trial $200 credit for the first 30 days).
Even though I already had office365 and Azure AD setup and running, I still had to create a new Azure account before I could see it.  Azure AD just showed up after my first login, I didn't have to do anything special.  I found it funny that when I asked about this at TechEd, the people from the Office365 booth and the guys in the Azure booth didn't know for sure if it would just show up or not.

On to setting up Applications with Azure AD with

They offer two types of Single Sign-On with
1. Windows Azure AD Single Sign-On
2. Password Single Sign-On

 Password Single Sign-On works fine, but if you want more advanced functions, like creating users with Azure…
