  • Hi Rob,

    It seems there is a lot of confusion and not clear instructions. I have been making a lot of calls and being transferred to many dept and no solution.

    1) Does Microsoft relevant dept help us (Developer) on with a guideline on how to go about it?

    2) Does our App need to embed the product key and so on.

    Would appreciate if you can provide the correct link for this.

    Thanks

  • See Try It Out - Sideload Windows Store Apps for a step-by-step walk through.

    If you want to create the package and let your customer sign it see Create a Windows Store AppX package and sign it .   

    From a development point of view you need to sign the app with a trusted certificate (as noted in the Try It Out link). Beyond that there isn't anything special needed for side-loading: it's all system configuration.
