Deploying Windows 8 Apps

Hi All,

another step-by-step, now on deploying windows 8 apps…

1st of all, create your app (you can follow my post on how to do it here)

Now, on CM console, we need to change the powershell execution policy, to do this, change the default client settings -> computer agent

Next step is to create the application, to do this, import a new app

Distribute the content

Create the deployment

Now the fun begin, On the client, change the Allow all trusted apps to install group policy settings (gpedit.msc) (Computer Configuration -> Administrative Tools -> Windows Components -> App Package Deployment)
**Note: I used gpedit.msc because I was only playing with 1 client and on any environment with more than 1 machine you should use GPO

Import certificate (again, on a corporate environment, use GPO to do this)

Now it is time to refresh the machine policy

When it is done, open the software center and install the application

Note that after the installation a new icon appears on the windows 8 menu

To monitor the deployment, use the deployments under monitoring on cm12 console
