Deploying a Windows Store App with Configuration Manager 2012 SP1

By Simon May

One of a series of videos I’m working on that show how deployment works for modern apps, Windows Store apps, Windows 8 apps, Windows RT apps or Appx packages – whatever you like to call them.

There are a few ways that you can deploy these types of apps to Windows 8 and Windows RT devices using System Center Configuration Manager 2012 SP1, Windows Intune and Microsoft Deployment Services Toolkit 2012 SP1 (MDT 2012 SP1).

In this first video I’m take a look at deeplinking an app from the Windows Store and deploying it to a Windows 8 Enterprise device. If you just want to see the client experience jump to 5 minutes.


A few notes on the technical requirements to make this work, so you can try it out in your lab:

    Hi Simon

    Great post, when I've published an app to the end user it's asking them to Switch to a Microsoft account on this PC. These are going to be student devices using an AD account not a Microsoft one, is there anyway around this or am I going to need a generic school account for the users to use.

    Kind regards
