  • Hi

    Windows phone 8.1 supports all the wp8 apps. When you right click on solution explorer, you will get a option to retarget it to windows phone 8.1.

    Since the api's have changed in windows phone 8.1, the windows phone api's will not work as such.

    So you will have to rewrite the code to make it work for windows phone 8.1.
