  • Hi christiantua,

    Please check whether the "Directory Browsing" in your IIS is "Enabled". If enabled, please disabled it.

    After disabled, please run your application again. If it still show the directory of your application. Please assign Home page as a default document in your IIS as below image.

    Best Regards,

  • Hi christiantua,

    Please refer to following blog which introduce how to configure a Web Server to Host LightSwitch applications.

    In addition, please check the detailed steps that you set on your IIS with following article. https://www.iis.net/configreference/system.webserver/directorybrowse

  • Thank you Weiwei,

    the links are very helpful, I've just found out that my visual studio lightswitch application was automatically updated with update 4 and very similar to visual studio 2013 and there is no way to be hosted on IIS Server 8 or 8.5 for deployment. The only alternative is to host it (application) with Microsoft azure, but i tried to registered and my country is not included (SAMOA)

    any idea
