    There is a hack of VS 2012 for WP that will make it run on Windows 7. You will have to search for it here or on XDA-developers where it first showed up.

    But do note its not officially sanctioned and still requires 64-bit Windows.

    yes there's a hack by changing the installer exe file. But after all the procedure I followed from XDA when I'm going to compile there's so many errors. For me you need to have windows8 so that you will no longer experience some errors on it.

    Just get 8.1 for your computer. Or if you want to stay with 7. Dual boot between 7 and 8.1. I have two computers that I dual boot and its a snap. If your computer can run 7 it can run 8.1.
