    In my recent article, "Is Visual Studio LightSwitch the New Access?", I looked at the suitability of LightSwitch as a replacement tool for departmental applications developed in Microsoft Access. LightSwitch is being positioned as a tool for the power user to develop Microsoft .NET Framework applications without having to face the substantial learning curve of the full .NET technology stack. I described each of the six extension types available to add the functionality to LightSwitch that an experienced .NET developer might want to use to make development in LightSwitch easier, or that a designer may want to use to build a visually appealing application.

    I have a parent and child tables, the parent table is an employee record and the child table is a job record, so each employee can have multiple jobs.  I need to know by Job what the percent of the total that job was.  I'm not sure if I should use a computed column in LigthSwitch or a view in the database.  If I were to use a computed column what would the query look like? Employee, Job, Hours, Percent Employee1, Job1, 7, 7/10 Employee1, Job2, 3, 3/10 Thank you in advance.

    I ask for your kind suggestions before going to mess up my dev box (Windows 8.1 pro X64), yesterday I tried but something failed so I ended up opting for system rollback to a previous restore point. So far I've always run my HTML apps by F5 and/or published on my internet shared hosting provider, without a hassle. I have SQL Server 2012 express already installed and running fine, VS2013 pro Update 3, IIS has never been installed before. Now I need to test locally some particular users authorizations so I'd like to follow this great Paul van Bladel post (Thanks Paul for sharing!) Long story short: I need IIS only for testing LS apps so installed WPI and choose LightSwitch in Visual Studio 2013 - Server Configuration with local SQL After, when tried to publish from (admin) VS received this error: Error
