As a point of reference, here are the key locations you should check in the event of a LightSwitch Installation failure. 

  • C:\Users\Tim\AppData\Local\Temp\dd_depcheck_VS_SIM_100.txt
  • C:\Users\Tim\AppData\Local\Temp\dd_error_vs_vslscore_100.txt
  • C:\Users\Tim\AppData\Local\Temp\dd_install_vs_vslscore_100.txt
