Each shell comes with installs that work with both versions of LightSwitch. The ‘VS11’ versions of the shell should be installed using the ‘Microsoft Visual Studio Version Selector’. All other shells should be installed using the ‘VSIXInstaller.exe’.


  • Each Shell includes installable VSIX files for both LightSwitch v1 and v2 or both
  • Use of icons in the navigation menus
  • Fully implemented LightSwitch validation in all shells

Known Issues:

These shells are optimized to work best with the current LightSwitch default office style theme but also work well with themes by Delordson, though some Delordson themes will need to be updated at some stage to take full advantage of these shells. This shell is not guaranteed to produce good results with other themes including (at this time) the new Cosmopolitan theme.
