Answers

  • Metro style apps cannot interact with other applications or make alterations to the system. Since this is exactly what the PackageManager does it cannot be used from a Metro style app.

    If you need to manage packages with the PackageManager you will need to do so from a Desktop app. Any questions you have about writing Desktop apps should be posted in the Windows Desktop Development Forums.
