Known issues of VSLS in Windows 8? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a plan to change my development machine but still undecided what OS should I acquire.  AFAIK Windows 7 doesn't have any issues in VSLS, what about Windows 8?  Is there any particular issues using VSLS in Windows 8?

  • Hi Kharol,

    You can be confident that it works perfectly on a win8 box. I have installed myself visual studio 2012 (and thus lightswitch) on several win 8 machines. Win 8 is a great OS and LightSwitch friendly. The IIS, which you might want to use for local (test) deployment,  is a bit different (it's IIS 8) but it all works fine.

    Good luck !

  • I use win7 and win8 and have not noticed any differences or problems unique to the OS.  Plenty of issues non-unique to the OS :)
