    [S]Is it possible to install the Windows Phone SDK without the emulator and the emulator images? I sold my PC that had the SDK, and I don't own a PC that is capable of running the WP8.x emulator (nor have I ever), and the emulator images are large and take a ridiculous amount of time to download on my internet.[/S]

    Turns out the 8.0SDK has to install with the images. However, the 8.1 SDK does not and installs with update 2RC for VSExpress 2013 for Windows. :)

    As it seems this is impossible and no one has answered me, i have listed this as a suggestion on the Windows Phone Development feedback page:

    Allow installation of Windows Phone SDK, sans-emulator – Dev Feedback on Windows Phone Development

    It is possible. Just uncheck the emulator images box when installing

    When I run the installer I have yet to find that option. (is it fairly new?)
