Are Windows 8 Packages Necessary


  • I am in the process of creating a new windows store app. I have created an App bundle for windows 8.1. Do I need to create a windows 8 package as well. I have been getting rejections from the store on an app that is working just fine on my dev machines and am wondering if this could be the problem.

    Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

  • Are there any statistics available to show the proportion of devices still on Windows 8?

    This would provide valuable information whether to provide an 8.0 package along with an 8.1.
