  • Hi Guys,

    >>I’m a beginner in windows app development and I need to develop "Windows 8 desktop mode applications, not Windows Store/Modern/Metro apps".

    If you want to develop Desktop mode application. I suggested you download Visual Studio Express 2012 for Windows Desktop. The download link is below,
