  • Hi,

    I suggest to go ahead with VS 2013 update 2 RC if you are targeting latest SDKs like Windows Phone 8.1.

  • Hi,

    Both versions of Visual Studio that you mentioned allow you to develop for Windows Phone.

    Visual Studio 2012 will let you develop for Windows Phone 8.0 only.

    Visual Studio 2013 will let you develop for Windows Phone 8.0, 8.1 and universal app. Depending on which edition of Visual Studio you will use (Ultimate, Express), you will have to install the corresponding sdk.

    I advise you to use the latest version of Visual Studio.
