How to build Store App for Windows 8.0 from Unity3D?

    Question

  • Hi,

    I'm using Unity3D 4.5.1 with Visual Express 2013 on Windows 8.1. I've successfully built for windows 8.1 but I'm unable to build for windows 8.0.

    From Unity3D, there is an option to export for Windows 8.0 but then it is not loaded in Visual Express 2013 without first re targeting it to Windows 8.1 and even then it doesn't run properly. When I build for Windows 8.1 from Unity3D, it is built with no errors in Visual Express.

    I have no idea, how to resolve this issue :\

  • Visual Studio Express 2013 supports Windows 8.1 apps only. It cannot build Windows 8 apps.

    You will need either a full version of Visual Studio 2013 or Visual Studio 2012 Express for Windows to build Windows 8 apps.
