You can target only Windows 8.1 with VS 2013?

If you tried to create a new Windows Store project with the new preview of Visual Studio 2013 on Windows 8.1, you probably noticed the “(Windows 8.1)” remark in the Solution Explorer:

vs2013-solution-explorer

If you open the project properties window, you can find the Target Platform Version option, but unfortunately it is disabled:

vs2013-target-platform

The basic principle, that you need a Windows 8 host to develop a Windows Store app is still true, however you have to watch for the versions as well (at least for this preview).

In short:

  • You can open and edit an existing Windows 8 project with Visual Studio 2013 on Windows 8.1.
  • You cannot create a new Windows 8 project with Visual Studio 2013 on Windows 8.1.
  • If you want to create a new Windows 8 project on Windows 8.1, you should use Visual Studio 2012.

    Elég vacak ötlet ez, én WP8-ra próbáltam csinálni magamnak saját használatra egy egyszerű appot, de nem, mert VS2013. És ahogy nézem azt se lehet átállítani.
