    Hi All

    Previously, for WP8 development, it was necessary to install the WP8 SDK: this effected prevented 32-bit users from developing for WP8.

    However, now that VS2013 RC2 is out, that requirement has been removed: 32-bit users can now develop and debug/deploy directly to a physical phone (it is the emulators that causes the issue).

    I'd be interested to know if there are any plans within Telerik to follow suit ?

     i.e. detect that VS2013 RC2 is present in which case Telerik can cope with WP8 development (with the same emulator restriction), rather than detecting WP8 SDK in which case we poor 32-bitters are still prevented from using the controls.
