You're right, Microsoft made changes in Visual Studio 2013 that do affect the code, and unfortunately it was released after our book went to press. I strongly recommend installing Visual Studio 2012 for Windows 8. You can install it alongside 2013. You can download it here: http://www.microsoft...s.aspx?id=30664
This only affects the Windows 8 projects. You can use VS2013 for Windows Desktop for all of the desktop projects (starting partway through Chapter 2).
