Upgrading Windows 8

Most of these instructions apply to projects created with an older set of command-line tools that precede the cordova CLI utility. See The Command-Line Interface for information how to update the version of the CLI.

Upgrade to 3.1.0

Cordova CLI support for Windows 8 was introduced in Cordova 3.1.0. To upgrade, we suggest creating a new Cordova CLI project and moving over all necessary assets.
