Starting Azure Storage Emulator for tests

I've managed to start azure emulator for testing, so I'd like to share my solution here. :)

In reference to closed topic, I've decided to start the emulator in a setup fixture (single fixture for the entire test class). This allows the solution to work both locally and on AppVeyor.
My solution checks if the emulator is already running and, if needed, starts it. At the end of Azure Storage related tests, if the emulator was down before tests, stops it.

Full credits to David Peden for sharing the AzureStorageEmulatorManager class!

    For Windows 10 the process name has changed to "AzureStorageEmulator".
