  • You can submit an app to the Windows 8 Apps Store where it can be downloaded and run on another PC, but I am thinking that this is not what you have in mind.

    You can create an app package in Visual Studio which can be loaded and run on another Windows 8 PC that has a developer's license.

    You can side load an app into other PCs that have certain Enterprise licenses.

  • You can follow this tutorial:


    by Tim Heuer on how to set up Remote Debugging on a Windows 8 machine (Surface RT, but it works the same for x86/x64 systems)

    You need to select Project | Store | Create App Packages.

    From there say no to build packages to upload to the windows store and follow the prompts from there.

    There will be a .ps1 in the package folder (Powershell file) which you run on the other pc and say yes to the prompts.

  • Can you please explain your scenario in more detail?

    The typical expectation is that Windows Store apps are deployed through the store, but apps can be deployed to other machines during the development process for testing (see Sharing an app package locally (Windows Store apps) ) and they can be side-loaded in an enterprise environment (see How to Add and Remove Apps on TechNet, or several discussions in the TechNet Windows 8 IT Pro forums).
