Registering the 8.1 windows Tablet as Phone for development RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,  I got a windows 8.1 tablet (linx 32 GB) and I installed Visual Studio Express for Windows in it.  I got a developer account also.  I want to register that tablet as one of the windows development phone.

    I tried launching the windows phone developer registration on the tablet and the status says Unable to connect to a phone.  Can someone please guide me please.

  • Windows 8.1 tablets aren't phones and cannot be registered as phones.

    Windows 8.1 tablets use the same OS as Windows 8.1 desktop systems. This is related to the Windows Phone 8.1 OS, but is not the same thing.

    You can write Universal apps to share source code between Windows and Windows Phone projects, but the projects need to be compiled separately for the two targets.
