SQLAzureMW is designed to be an on-premise application. That said, in theory, you should be able to get it up and running in a web role or worker role. What you need to remember is that SQLAzureMW requires SQL Server 2008 R2 SP1 bits. Thus not only would you have to package up SQLAzureMW, but you would have to package up SQL Server bits as well (I use SMO and BCP). You might be able to set something up using a Windows Azure Drive. Anyway, did you have SQL Server 2008 R2 SP1 in your worker role as well?
