The Hosted Team Foundation Service build doesn’t support building Windows Store Apps. A lot of other environment are supported but Azure doesn’t allow you to run a Windows 8 Client. So, no Windows Store Apps build agent on Azure.
You could setup a local machine with Windows 8, configure a build controller, agent and connect it to TFSPreview, will cost you a machine. Lucky, there is an easy way get this organized...
Use the default Windows Server 2012 Azure Image …
Although the documentation at: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/br211386.aspx says : “Important Windows Store app development is supported only on Windows 8. You can't develop Windows Store apps on Windows 7 or Windows Server 2012.”. It simply works.
Installing TFS Build on this Azure VM, connect it to TFSPreview will do the magic.
