There is no need to run any upgrade scripts on a clean install.
If you rebuild your solution or modify your Global.asax file will fix this as this will make MVC to find the new controllers of the plugins (Global.asax is modified internally when a new plugin is installed but it doesn't always work) and find the Settings pages in the administration respectfully. You mention that the Save doesn't work. Can you specify which Save is not working i.e for which plugin?
We have't tried nopCommerce with SQL Azure. Is there a separate branch of nopCommerce or it is the regular branch but it can also work on Azure.
The cart pages should work as the theme is upgrade for nopCommerce 2.65.
What is the error you receive?
Update:We just noticed that the Add to Cart button on a category page is not working right after a clean installation but once we go to a product page it is working fine. That is quite strange and we will investigate it. Please let us know if you have any problems with the Ajax Cart. Maybe Ctrl + F5 is required to update the browser cache.

Hello, and thank you for your response.
The problem began when I clicked on the SAVE button to apply the new theme from my General Settings. I changed the store name and theme and a few default SEO parameters, clicked save and after a few seconds got a DNS error..page can't be reached.. and I get a DNS-type error when I try to access the admin area with a new browser session, or after I add items when I go to view my shopping cart...
EDIT: As I said before, the values I specified in the general settings worked..the theme was applied and default meta tags, etc....and I have looked at my web.config, and it was definitely modified by the app when I clicked save...many new "add key" entries...it just seems that something didn't go quite right.
I am using the normal 2.65 version of nopcommerce.
I initially installed nopcommerce using a local installation of SQL Server 2008 R2, then created a SQL Azure database. I used the SQL Aure migration assistant program to copy all the tables and queries to the new Azure database. I then changed the connectionstring in my App_Data/Settings.txt to point to the Azure database...it worked perfectly. The next day we bought the electronic theme, and here we are...
I do have Visual Studio 2010, but I JUST got it, so I don't yet know how to "rebuild the solution."
My global.asax looks like this:
<%@ Application Codebehind="Global.asax.cs" Inherits="Nop.Web.MvcApplication" Language="C#" %>
Can you point me in the right direction for modifying it please?
