TFSPreview with a Windows Store Apps build on Azure

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 Smile


Although the documentation at: 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.
