@GerryW - There is not a "LS download for VS 2015 Community". There is only "VS 2015 Community" and the "Office Developer Tools" add on that includes LightSwitch.

Hi, Michael.
I have a problem with creating HTML lightswich project in VS 2015 Community. VS tells me that it is impossible because "this projects are not supported in this VS version". Is this known problem?
