Offer different deployment-options
ATM, the only deployment method that is available is ClickOnce. While this is mostly the best choice, we need to be able to change to a different deployment solutions.
Thank you for your suggestion on improving LightSwitch. However, Visual Studio 2015 is the last release of Visual Studio that includes the LightSwitch tooling and we recommend users not begin new application development with LightSwitch. That said, we will continue to support users with existing LightSwitch applications, including critical bug fixes and security issues as per the Microsoft Support Lifecycle.

You can also deploy to IIS as well as Azure. ClickOnce deployment is only used for 2-tier (client-server) deployment on a local area network (LAN). For more information see:
