Windows phone development in windows xp





gctpoy
I read that windows xp is not supported by windows phone 7 developer tools.
I googled around and found that with minor tweaking,some were able to install the developer tools in windows xp.
But everybody i have seen reported that windows phone 7 emulator is not working in windows xp.
I also read that developer tools require directx 10 for running it.

I run windows xp in my old machine and thinking of upgrading it.
Does anybody had success with making the emulator work?

Try using the Microsoft expression studio for the development on the WinPhone7 platform it is great to use and has a great bit of advantage over the other SDK's

If your machine is old, perhaps you can try installing windows 7 starter edition?
It is a much lighter version of windows 7, and I think it requires 512MB ram, so maybe that will help resolve your issue.
My suggestion is to use a completely new hard disk for this installation, to test it first, instead of formatting your existing one, so that you can revert back if the new windows 7 does nto work.
If it does work, then you can just connect the xp hard disk externally and copy the data you need... or connect rhe xp hard disk as a slave disk, but maybe the system will get confused, because there is an active partition OS on it, so better to connect it externally.

I DID INSTALL WINDOWS 7 ULTIMATE AND MANGO SDK.
This requires graphics acceleration and emulator doesnt work
