I just updated my LightSwitch IIS Deployment Enhancements in Visual Studio 2012 post to coordinate with the Visual Studio 2012 Release Candidate and the Windows Azure SDK for .NET.

LightSwitch has a new publishing wizard in the new Azure SDK which makes it much easier to publish to Azure Cloud Services and also supports the new Azure Web Sites platform.

  • You'll need to troubleshoot the exact error message. Here's how:

    I also recommend asking your question in the LightSwitch forum, there are a lot of folks there that should be able to help:
