    For development on Windows 8 platform the best Microsoft Solution combination will be Visual Studio 2012, SDK for Windows 8 (free) and Visual Studio Express 2012 (free). If you are a student, then you can get the Visual Studio 2012 also under the student program, free of cost or at a nominal fee.
