Lightswitch Visual Studio 2012 to 2013 publish project problem RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I have two websites on Azure. One is a test and the other is production. I also have an SQL data base for each.  I have alsways updated my lightswitch project and published (3 tier). The end user could click on their desktop icon and access the program.  I could also open the Azure website configuration screen and select the URL to bring me to my website. xxxtest.azurewebsites.net.   After I upgraded to visual studio 2013, I publish my program and when I select the URL in azure or I clock on my icon the updates do not show up.  I stubled across someone saying you have to put a /client after the website for it to work. When a enter XXXtest.Azurewebsites.net/client, it tries to have me install the program shortcut on my desktop (3 tier). I then have the old app and the new published app.  Since this program is on 50+ computers I don't want to tell everyone to delete and go to the new /client website to download the new version. Is there anyway I can make Visual studio publish this to the website without the /client?

  • Hi Randy

    For your question, I just want to say that we can deploy updates to a LightSwitch application by running the wizard again. 3-tier browser clients need only re-navigate to the web page to get the updated version. 2-tier desktop clients will automatically receive the updates the next time they are run.
