NAV Developer Preview – Fix Script

When you want to experience the new developer tools, you need to set up a VM on Azure. Now, this takes a while. On top of that, it’s all “preview”. As in: “might crash”. And in: “if it crashes, there might not be a decent way out”. I was able to completely mess up my …
