      Hardware Requirements
      • 1.6 GHz or faster processor
      • 1 GB of RAM (1.5 GB if running on a virtual machine)
      • 8.5 GB of available hard disk space
      • 5400 RPM hard disk drive
      • DirectX 9-capable video card that runs at 1024 x 768 or higher display resolution
      Additional Requirements:
      • For Windows Phone development:
        • Windows Phone 8.0 development requires Windows 8.1 (x64) or higher
        • Windows Phone 8.1 development requires Windows 8.1 (x86) or higher
        • For the Windows Phone emulators, Windows 8.1 (x64) Professional edition or higher, and a processor that supports Client Hyper-V and Second Level Address Translation (SLAT)

      If your computer meets the operating system requirements but does not meet the hardware requirements for the Windows Phone Emulators, the Windows Phone development tools will install and run. However, the Windows Phone 8.0 and 8.1 Emulators will not function and you must use a device to deploy or test Windows Phone apps.

          • Once downloaded, you can run VS2013.4.exe from the download location to install the update.
