Take user to updates screen on Surface or Desktop?


  • In my app I alert the user when an update is available for the app.  How can I take them to the WinRT screen with the update link for my app so all they have to do is Tap/Click to get the update?

  • Windows 8.1 will automatically update apps for you.

    You can link to your app as documented in the Linking to your app documentation.

  • Thanks Rob, but is that where I take existing users to do an update, like when you do an update after seeing an update count on an app tile and it automatically starts the update download when you click it?

    BTW I put you in the shoutouts section of my new WinRT app RecNote for the ton of help you gave me.  If you have a blog or site let me know and I'll add a link to it:
