Restrictions of the privileged apps number

    Question

  •   We fully support the Windows Store App and Metro applications; however, we
    are faced with the following problem: we can give access to our fingerprint
    scanners only from one Windows Store application. This problem occurs,
    because of restrictions of the privileged apps number, we can specify in the
    metadata for our device. This restriction greatly complicates usage of our
    fingerprint scanners in the Windows Metro applications. In this situation,
    we have to generate a new metadata package, and then reinstall it in the
    Windows, and remove the previous cached metadata. This technique is not very
    convenient for our customers, and also allows you to install and run at the
    same time more than one Widows Store application that works with our
    scanners.
      Therefore, please give us the ability to add metadata to our device any
    number of privileged applications as OEM Developers.

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.
