    Hello all, I am trying to deploy this appliaction locally to my machine via a zip package. I have all the LS prerequisites installed as I used WMI installer 3.0. I have web deployment 1.1 and 2.0 installed as well. (I even uninstalled, rebooted and reinstalled them again)

    When I created my package for publishing, I checked the box that says "IIS server has the LS deployment prerequisites installed" because I am using form authentication and need to create the administrator user when I install the app to my IIS server.

    Any ideas on how I can fix this issue? Do I need to uninstall IIS and start all over? If I uncheck the above box, it deploys fine but then I cannot access the app because there is no admin user created.

    any help is really appreciated.

    Hello, I am trying to build in some validation, and cancel all navigation and/or applying of changes on a dialog AddEditScreen, depending on the value of a specific content item. I am also using SweetAlert. Here is my code... myapp.AddEditIncident.beforeApplyChanges = function (screen) { if (screen.Incident.StrRepChargeTo == null) { swal({ title: "Make a selection!", text: "Please choose a Charge To location...", type: "success", showCancelButton: false, showConfirmButton: true, cancelButtonText: "OK!", confirmButtonText: "OK!" }, function () { //myapp.cancelChanges().then(function () { // myapp.navigateBack(); }) }) } } Everything works, except LS starts the page navigation even before the beforeApplyChanges

    I´m developing a custom Treeview control based on Syncfusion control library and need to access the Lightswitch screens DataWorkspace.MyDatasource.MyEntities from my control and map entities to my TreeView.

    My control is developed in a separate silverlight project. I can access the data over oData but as my application will need to run as an offline 2-tier local desktop application with localdb in certain situation I´m not sure how to access the local oData services as there are no webserver around hosting the Data svc services and I want to avoid installing a local IIS on all desktop installations running the Lightswitch oData services. If it´s possible to access the local oData I would be glad to see an example on how to accomplish that. if there is no other solution then hostin oData services in local IIS how should the authentication be set up on the oData
