WP8 SDK (Software Development Kit) Now Officially Available for Download

| October 30, 2012 | 15 Replies


Seeing as yesterday all of WP8 was unveiled (underwhelming to put it shortly); today Microsoft are holding a developer based event to give the goods to app developers  and convince them to develop for Wp8; a critical step of which requires the SDK to be in the hands of the developers. The SDK tools are now officially available online at the Microsoft Site, HERE (requires Windows 8).

      They’re going over new wp features. Ballmer gave away free 100gb sky drive upgrades and surface rt’s to everyone.

        And Lumias! OMG.

          But who want to show his own code and ideas in cloud controlled by competition – that is the question.

          All in all that are 3 things I do not even want for free. Are they giving away something interesting?

    when I thought , wp was doing the right thing , suddenly get this sdk , a complete fail, will only be used in W8 and other insane requirements I do not think WP have a good future


    “(requires Windows 8)”

    Umm… WTF?

      It’s Microsoft way of punishing you for developing for WP8. Justice is served, I’d say.

  • Wazapp

    It requires Hyper-V, that’s why W8 is needed.

    • Patata

      cause wp developers are too dump to install the seperate version under Win 7 or Vista?

      • Viipottaja

        I am sure they are then clever enough to note this too and then install Hyper-V, no?

        “Also the Windows Phone Emulator runs on Hyper-V which requires 64bit processor and some more stuff. If your system is not capable of running Hyper-V, you can still install SDK without enjoying the emulator.”

    40 bicks to get a better optimized OS and powerful tools to develop quality apps for WP8 and RT? Still a bargain.

    And tomshardware.com has a 20 page write up on W8 and how to make it more usable for the REAL PC user.

  • SDK is most important software Development kit.Developer use this kit to easily developed software.
