Install Metro Application without VS2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I'm developing an application for Windows 8.

    I have the code on my pc and when i need to run the application on tablet i copy and past the code, from pc to tablet.

    I know it is a bad idea, but i did not time for configuration a remoting connection.

    I need to do something simple like: i compile the code in my pc and then with the result i want to install the application in tablet.

    There is a way to install the application? What i need?

  • Hi,

    what you need is a developer license on your tablet. Normally you get one through VS 2012, but you can also get one through PowerShell. With that license you can install the app-package through PowerShell. The following article explains the steps to take - http://geoffwebbercross.blogspot.de/2012/07/installing-windows-8-app-package.html

    The article assumes that you have built an app-package with Visual Studio - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/br230835.aspx#using_visual_studio

  • When i try to create an app-package:

    "From the Store menu item, select Create App Packages..."

    I need an account for store, because always give me :

    "Your Microsoft account is not registered to submit apps to the store.

    To register or check yout registration, go to the windows developer portal."

    And the site says:

    " We're sorry, but the Windows Store is currently closed to general registration. "


    In this article i found my problem for app package:
