As we have seen earlier here, you can develop Universal Apps (Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1).
You can easily run your App in Visual Studio 2013 Express for Windows with Update 2 RC. However, if you want to run your App in an emulator there are requirements to be met before you can use the emulator.
If you are running the standard Windows 8.1 that is bundled with your laptop you purchased then you need to upgrade it to Windows 8.1 Pro (pay $99.00+tax to Microsoft) because if you use the standard edition and try to run a Windows Phone 8.1 App you will get this warning. Of course to run Hyper-V you need to get the Professional or above edition of the OS.
The emulators run in Hyper-V
Windows 8.1 Professional comes with Hyper-V which you should enable in the Control Panel (Windows Features) as shown.
After enabling Hypr-V you should reboot the computer for the changes to take effect.
Once you do this you can see the emulators in your Visual Studio 2013 IDE as shown. Here I am trying to run a project created using the Windows AppStudio.

Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...
