Windows Phone 8 SDK Download Links and Resources

 

Download the new Windows Phone 8 SDK from the official download page. Also make sure that you rock a 64bit computer with SLAT capability. Here is the full requirements list:

Supported operating systems: Windows 8, Windows 8 Pro

  • Windows 8 64-bit (x64) client versions
  • Hardware:
    • 4 GB of free hard disk space
    • 4 GB RAM
    • 64-bit (x64) CPU
  • Windows Phone 8 Emulator:
    • Windows 8 Pro edition or greater
    • Requires a processor that supports Second Level Address Translation (SLAT)

If your computer meets the hardware and operating system requirements, but does meet the requirements for the Windows Phone 8 Emulator, the Windows Phone SDK 8.0 will install and run. However, the Windows Phone 8 Emulator will not function and you will not be able to deploy or test apps on the Windows Phone 8 Emulator.

To check if your process supports SLAT, download coreinfo and run it as administrator with the following command: coreinfo -v. If you have an Intel processor, you should have an asterix in the row containing EPT. If you do not have EPT row or if you have a minus there, you can forget about running the emulator. Also note that you need to enable Hyper-V role on your computer.

That is a lot of new stuff to digest. Happy coding :)
