To use Sitefinity thunder and deploy automatically to Azure you need the full 18.104.22.168 Azure SDK.
The required version of Azure SDK 1.8 is needed because Sitefintiy is compiled using version 22.214.171.124 and requires the same version to be used for building Azure deployment package.
Please install Azure SDK version 126.96.36.199 and I highly recommend using Sitefintiy Thunder to automate the deployment for azure, please refer to Sitefinty thunder documentation
for deployment to Azure.
