Windows Phone SDK could be already included in VS Pro or higher
I've installed already the VS 2012 RC and noticed that Windows Phone SDK isn't already included. And that is because it isn't avalable yet.
To avoid the bad experience that Windows Phone 7.1 SDK causes to developers that are using VS 2010 Pro and Higher, because that installs a bunch of stuff already installed in VS 2010 Pro and it installs VS 2010 express for phone. Why the **** I need the express over VS Pro??? After 30 days it reminds to register the express edition, really Microsoft??? I'm using the Pro edition!!!
Thanks for taking the time to share this suggestion. This item has been around for a couple of versions of Visual Studio and we haven’t acted on it. Looking at the VS “15” plans, we’re not going to take action on this item, so we’re going to close it. If the suggestion is still relevant, please either take a look to see if there’s another suggestion that’s similar that you can vote on, or open a new suggestion.
