I currently have my workplace all set up with Windows 7 so now I'm looking to develop Windows Phone 8. However, I just found out from one of my friends that it can't be installed on Windows 7. Does someone know of a way to install it? Thank you.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I can’t validate the success of this but apparently someone made it possible:

I would advise reading through the entire thread first though.

    There is no way to install the Windows Phone SDK directly on Windows 7.  In any case, you could install it on a virtual machine, but you would still need a Windows 8 license for the guest.

    True, it can be installed with some tweaking, and it might be even possible to deploy apps to a device.  However, the emulator can't run on Windows 7, because it is a virtual machine that needs Hyper-V.
