Add LocalDB to Clickonce automatic publishing Prerequisite

We need an easy way to publish an app with LocalDB. Clickonce does not currently support this as an easy prerequisite the same way it does SQL Server Express, or Compact. Developers will likely use LocalDB as a solution more if it was easier to publish. Not everyone is going to be wiling to spend 2- 5 hours researching how to hard code a bootstrap to publish LocalDB when ClickOnce does it with a check box. I think developers like myself will remain resistant to using this until Microsoft makes it easier to publish.

Thanks for taking the time to share this suggestion. This item has been around for a couple of versions of Visual Studio and we haven’t acted on it. Looking at the VS “15” plans, we’re not going to take action on this item, so we’re going to close it.
