Q. Is there any way to run ASP.NET MVC 4 app like a local desktop app?

I'm working with traveling sales people who are without Internet access sometimes. I don't really want to build both a web app and desktop app. The web app uses a SQL database too. Thought I would use a local data base that syncs with the cloud SQL.

You could do a web app using html5. Using localstorage and cache manifest you can configure to cache everything so the user can access the web app every time it needs to. Take a look at breezejs, it allows you to do changes even when you are offline. When the user gets back online. The changes will be pushed to the server. In this way the user can use a tables, notebook ir even a mobile phone.

If the desktop is really your thing you can use a .mdf database to store your data and createa sync button to push the data from the db to the target database by using an api for example
