  • LightSwitch is not available in Visual Studio 2017. The last Visual Studio to support it is Visual Studio 2015. If you have a licence for Visual Studio 2015 then LightSwitch comes with that with no extra charge. You just need to have the Office Tools for Visual Studio package installed.

    Hope that helps.

  • If you qualify you can download VS 2015 Community for free depends on if you work for a large company or not that makes over a certain amount. It may be possible you just install 2015 for personal use on a separate machine install VS 2015 community and the Office development pack and Silverlight 5 for developers and an express version of MS SQL.

    Actually in all seriousness I suggest visual studio 2013 I found that Lightswitch was problematic on 2015. But yeah you haven't had to buy Lightswitch since after it's debut from beta to a DVD in 2011.
