  • In order to deploy Windows Store Apps in Window RT(Windows on ARM), a new operating system for thin and light PCs OS,

    you need a Surface PC. Because Windows RT comes pre-installed on PCs and tablets that are powered by ARM processors.

    Moreover, you have to build it separately by selecting ARM as a target architecture.

    A Windows Store app is a new type of application that runs on Windows 8 devices containing Windows Runtime(WinRT).

    So it is supposed to deploy any environment like Surface for Windows RT where Windows Runtime available.
    Windows Runtime(WinRT) is a platform-homogeneous application architecture on the Windows 8 operating system. 

    The Windows Runtime library (WinRT) provides system services for Windows Store apps. WinRT applications natively support

    both the x86 and ARM architectures, and also run inside a sandboxed environment to allow for greater security and stability.
