[W8] – Installer des Metros Apps sans Windows-Store


En ce moment, je suis entrain de développer des petites applications metros afin de me simplifier encore plus ma veille technologique.

Néanmoins ces applications n’ont pas comme vocation d’etre poster sur le Windows Store, mais juste d’etre déployer sur mes machines Windows 8.

Step 1:

  • Tap on the Windows key, enter group policy, switch to Settings on the filter on the right, and load the Group Policy on the system
  • Navigate to Local Computer Policy > Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > App Package Deployment
  • Double click Allow all trusted apps to install
  • Switch the setting to enabled and click ok.

This sets the value of the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Appx\AllowAllTrustedApps Registry key to 1. If you do not have access to the Group Policy, change the value in the Registry directly for the same effect.


Step 2: Dans une invite de commande powershell

add-appxpackage C:\app1.appx –DependencyPath C:\winjs.appx
