WPSDK 8 support on Windows 8 - Develop WP 8 apps on Windows 7
I think you should allow Windows 7 computer owners the ability to develop Windows 8 phone apps. They have a device to develop on, I believe the only thing you can't do is use the emulator. I have everything up and running, except VS express 2012 won't recognize my windows 8 phone and deploy to it, so I can test my app. Can I manually place the .xap file using file explorer, or is there some way to fix this? It gives me this error 'Microsoft.SmartDevice.Connectivity.PlatformNotFoundException'
Is it possible to fix this?

I have the same issue, but on a 32-bit Windows 8 machine.
Took the hassle of installing the Windows Phone 8 SDK components individually so as to enable the use of .NET 4.5 features (like async), but am unable to deploy my app to my phone.
Same issue I am facing have you found any solution for it? :(:(:(
This is going to apple route of forcing developers to buy the platform and putting them off. Android will be a much better alternative now since MS has made the ecosystem so complex and tightly bound to the latest products
