  • Kinect for Windows is only supported on the desktop side of Windows 8. You will not be able to write a Windows Store based application due to the WinRT application development model.

    There have been side projects people have done to integrate Kinect for Windows data (depth/skeletal/interactions) into a Windows Store based application using web sockets. This will only work with side loaded application and would not be certified through the store.
