    Still no VS2013 Update 3 at the links provided above. All of the above links take you to VS2013 Update 2.

    I hate to say this but it just takes time to fix a broken link since it has to propagate, it should be working shortly. Really sorry for your issues

    Are there any limitations developing mobile apps, using VS2013 Update 3, on a windows 7 PC as opposed to windows 8.1 PC? If so, what are they?

    @bitFlinger: You need Windows 8 to build Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 apps. See the requirements for the Phone emulator here. To build Windows 8 apps, you could use a Win 8 VM. But that won't work for Phone apps.

    You can build iOS and Android apps with the Xamarin tools on both Windows 7 and 8.

    I'm a bit confused. Based on the following excerpts, it seems like VS2013 update 3/CTP2 addressed developing windows 8.1 store apps on windows 7 machines:

    - Today, we are releasing an updated CTP2 of the Multi-Device Hybrid Apps tools. CTP2 includes support for developers on Windows 7 desktops, debugging support for Android <4.4 and across-the-board quality, reliability and performance improvements.

    - 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. REF: https://blogs.msdn.com/b/visualstudio/archive/2014/08/04/apache-cordova-tooling-update-with-support-for-windows-7.aspx

    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?

    @bitFlinger: With the Cordova extension, you can build Windows 8, Windows Phone 8, iOS and Android apps. To build Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 apps, you have to be running Windows 8. If you have Windows 7, you could only build iOS and Android apps.

    @Ian: We only have links to the most recent updates on the public download site. You can get previous updates via MSDN subscriptions.

    Everything in Update 2 is in Update 3. Is there a reason not to install Update 3?

    @rogreen: Thank you for the response. I am currently using a vs 2012 pro, and trying to build CEF project. I have been told that i should try building it with vs 2013pro update2 in order for it to work, because so far everything else has failed!

    I did manage to find update2 ISO file (only the update) but all the links in MS websites that like to update 2 are now linked to update 3, it seems like it is nowhere to be found!!

    Sorry for the long message, but i was not able to find the vs update2 download link that is not a link to download update 3! Could you help me with that please

    @Ian: If you have an MSDN subscription, you can find Update 2 in the Subscriber Downloads. If you do not, I would recommend you install Update 3 and see if the project works. If it does not, email me at rogreen at microsoft dot com and I will try and help.
