Windows Store apps on Windows Server 2012

    Question

  • I've tried installing my Metro App on a Windows Server 2012 Standard, but apparently I can't run any Metro app using the built-in administrator accout. As it's not my server, I would prefere not to create any other user accounts. I've read something on the internet about the UAC enable/disabled. In this momment the UAC is enabled. So is there something that I can change to make it work ? Having the move from one account to another all the time would be very annoying because of the purpose of the server itself : always logging out and than back in.

    *I mention that I installed my Metro app using sideloading, if this matter in any way, but I don't think so, as all the Metro apps are blocked.

  • Windows Store apps require the split token used by UAC so they can run with reduced privileges.. They cannot run under the built-in Administrator account which always runs with full privileges.
