I have searched and searched, been on MSDN online support with so far no luck. So here goes.
Non-Domain Win8 Pro tablets VPN only access to corporate. By design they do not want the tablets to have domain access at the machine level, instead the users VPN into the domain and run LOB applications.
These are not Volume-license computers, so that seems to be the only place to purchase "side-loading product keys".
If this forum is the wrong place, please refer to the correct one, because I am assuming that a VPN only non-domain, non-VL tablet cannot use LOB applications in the Win8 UI. I need to inform my client.

In order to assist you, I would like to break the question down. So we have users which will connect to a network over VPN, who will want to use LOB Applications. As the question was posted to the Publishing Windows Store Apps, as there Apps in the Windows Store, or Desktop Apps.
Will these Apps be internal only or available in the Windows Store.

First thank for your reply. I am only here since MSDN chat support had no idea how to answer my question and could not point me to the correct forum. So yes this forum is focused for the Store. I needed to find someone who is more familiar with win8, so they point me/redirect me to correct place. No one seems to know.
the apps will be internal only
non-volume license win8 pro
vpn only, no domain by design, ipsec
lob only, non store, senior executive staff
so where can we obtain/buy keys.
The only product keys seem to be for volume-license. Developer licenses expire
That's it can anyone any place answer this.
I fully support win8 guidelines. I like being licensed and/or product keys.

Sideloading is more of an IT thing than a developer thing, so you'll be better off asking on the Windows 8 IT Pro forums on TechNet.
I found some information on sideloading in the Managing Client Access to the Windows Store and How to Add and Remove Apps documentation on TechNet, but they don't discuss where to get the sideloading key other than pointing to the volume licensing site. It is possible that they are not yet available.
