I was a bit annoyed when I couldn't install Windows Phone Power Tools on Windows 7 due to Visual Studio 2012 needed, but I found a way to get it working. So.. here =D

Step 1 - Install this lite version of Windows Phone 8 SDK and it's prerequisites from here (works on Windows 7, includes Developer Unlock and stock WP8 SDK XAP deployment)

Step 2 - Install Visual Studio Express 2010 (yes 2010) from

Step 3 - Download Windows Phone Power Tools from

Step 4 - Now Power Tools should install, since it has the required resources, albeit older ones, to install.

Step 5 - Uninstall Visual Studio 2010 if desired (you can by opening it's install thing again). Not necesarry I don't believe.

Step 6 - Enjoy WPPT on Windows 7 =D

Sorry if something like this was posted already.

If you have to ask, the answer is probably "no". It deploys homebrew and development apps. It is neither intended for, nor particularly useful for, pirating apps or games (discussion of which is strictly prohibited on XDA, by the way...)
