Yep. WOrks fine. So long as you don't deliberately try to make use of Vista/Win7/Metro specific features of course.

I strongly suggest installing VMware or some other virtualization technology on your development PC so you can create a couple virtual computers for testing. This would allow you to debug and test inside: WinXP32, XP64, Vista, Win7x32, Win7x64... etc. without having to actually have 5 physical PC's. Visual Studio will let you send the debug directly into one of these virtual machines so you can watch it operate, check its variables, see the crashes and so on just as if it were debugging on your real machine.

I would try vmware.com first, but that's just me. Or you could try bing, google, askjeeves, etc.

I would actually suggest that you use VirtualBox. It's made by Oracle and has a more user friendly UI. VMware may be better (I think it actually is), but I prefer VirtualBox since there aren't many capabilities that VMWare supports and VirtualBox doesn't + VirtualBox has a more nicer UI.

VirtualBox FTW!
