Different Windows 8 previews


  • Hey

    I've downloaded and installed Windows 8 Developer Preview x32, and signed in using my live.com account and added my PC as trusted, but none of my pictures have been synced from Skydrive. Is this feature available in this preview?

    Also what are the main difference between x32, x64 and x64 with developer tools? Do you get anymore features or Apps with the X64 with developers tools, minus the obvious Dev Tools.

  • Hi Chris,

    We are not distributing the SkyDrive app with the Developer Preview, so your SkyDrive pictures won't sync.  It probably won't be distributed until Beta.

    What will sync are things like your user tile picture, desktop background, IE preferences, and many other settings including levels and states of the sample games.  See the "Sync PC Setting" page of the control panel.

    If you setup on a second machine, or have to reinstall later, all of these settings will return via sync.
