Will Express Support Metro at Release RRS feed

  • Question

  • We were wondering if the use of Visual Studio Express 2012 will support the Windows 8 Metro application development and Store submission when it is RTM'ed.

    We are working on a beta of VS 2012 Professional but when VS 2012 is released, we will not be upgrading everyone to 2012 until after the first of the year. We wanted to see what the viability of using Express for Metro development after RTM until we can push apporval for purchasing licenses for VS 2012.
