Soliving: Visual Studio 2013 U1 Lightswitch – March 2014–Can’t create project (.lsxtproj) is not supported.

After updating the SQL Server Data Tools in Microsoft Visual Studio 2013, creating a LigthSwitch project will result in an error: ‘…\Application1.lsxtproj’ cannot be opened because its project type (.lsxtproj) is not supported by this version of the application. To open it, please use a version that supports this type of project.


I installed everything regarding the SQL Server Data Tools and after restarting Microsoft Visual Studio 2013, I could create a LightSwitch project again.



On my development machine: “Micrososft Office Developer Tools for Visual Studio 2013 – March 2014 Update” is installed.
