Oh great, it requires x64. My Windows Mobile 6.5 app needs the emulator, which in turn needs Virtual PC for networking, which in turn requires x86 Windows. So, I installed Windows 8 x86.
I might just re-install Windows 8, but this time go x64. Anyone done this type of upgrade?
Another option is to use boot to VHD so that you have specific dev environments that run on your bare metal and can switch as needed with ease.
