  • Thanks jesse but where is the comparison; I need the feature comparison not product details.

    I want to start development and I think that would be great If anyone could help me in detail.

       There is not a feature comparison chart that I know of between the free express and Ultimate.   I am not sure why this would stop development.  What is it that you are looking for?  Is there something specific that you want to do?

  • HI Daniel,

    My question is simple not a complex question.

    Could you please guide me what are the limitations in Express edition?

    Why I require to Ultimate Edition with respect to windows store app?

    For example : Ultimate edition offer some architectural feature and testing features.

    Like I mentioned above , I need these features.

    Why I choose your Ultimate product rather than Express edition?

    If both are equal then why Express is Frees (I know Ultimate edition have some powerful features + powerful Subscription package)?

    Hope this 'll help to find out the answer of question.
