    Need advise on creating Windows Tablet application


    I am new to this site.
    I was a VB developer but long time back i moved into Microsoft Dynamics NAV
    Still got some knowledge on SQL,VB Script, ADO etc.
    I hate c#, can do only

    I need to start learning win 8 tablet application
    I need to develop a tablet application which can read and write into MS Navision SQL database
    it should have option to store locally within tablet if it is offline (no wifi) and synch later on
    Users can go into the field, do the survey whole day and in evening update the server

    Please advise
    Which tool do I need, I heard VS 2012 & DEVExpress will be good
    Can i develop on Win 7 OS, or i will need win 8

    Any code sample, pdf would be superb

    I'd say your best bet would be to use the Visual Studio 2012 Express For Windows Phone. You could also consider using the VS 2013 RC or Preview. Unfortunately, you will need this on Windows 8, or 8.1 not on Windows 7
    There was a time, long, long a go when a guy named Hannes du Preez ( Hey! That's me!! ) knew anything and everything concerning programming technologies. Since, he has had a burn-out, got married and had kids ( and puppies - do not forget the puppies ), and our friend Hannes has turned grey, almost bald, and most importantly, his belly grew substantially! He also experienced problems with his hands.
    Now, Hannes said to himself: "Learn new things! If you do not learn new things and accept the changes in technology, you will become stuck in the same gear!"
    So, our friend, Hannes ( the unsung hero - once ) has stumbled upon the awesomeness which is mobile programming, Android, BlackBerry and Windows Phone 8. Thus far, he has done good - he even has a bunch of articles on them - with the hopes that maybe one day, he'll find his dream job.
    Besides trying to program PCs., AVR devices, and mobile devices he likes writing poetry, short stories, novels, songs, and tries his hand at art; even though his wife is a far better painter and sculptor... Moral of the story: Forgive him for not always getting it right, he is after all just human, and he has accepted his faults; but, at least he is trying! Perhaps if he would think asked questions properly through, he'd get all his answers right... Forgive him as well for being grumpy at times, as his neuro-pathways are still a bit scrambled...

    Windows tablets do not run Windows Phone. They run Windows 7 if they are old, Windows Vista or Windows XP Tablet Edition if very old, otherwise they run Windows 8 or Windows RT 8.

    Win8 is dying, and users are being upgraded to Win8.1 for free (like a Service Pack but they don't call it that). This means you'll need Visual Studio Express 2013 for Windows.
