- Support for Windows 7 and 8. According to our data, nearly 15% of developers who attempt to install the Cordova extension are using Windows 7 or 8. Prior to this release, those developers would have had to upgrade to Windows 8.1 – which isn't always convenient or even possible in an enterprise environment. So, starting with CTP 2.0, developers running Windows 7+ (including Windows Server 2012 R2) can install and use the same toolset previously available only on Windows 8.1.

What is the point of the toolkit without VS?
Therefore, Can someone clarify if you can develop HTML5/CSS/JS windows 8.1 store apps using VS2013 on a windows 7 development box. If possible, are there any limitations?
