How to ever be able to install and test a DRM protected app from marketplace on the WP Emulator (8 and 8.1)? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I hade to test an DRM protected app on the app store on WP 8 and 8.1. We do not have any physical device available, so I therefore installed the SDK and emulators on a VM with Hyper-V enabled. All worked just fine, and starting and using the emulators just worked great.

    BUT, then I realized that you cannot install an app from the marketplace on to an WP emulator. You can not even register using your live account. So, I thought that I could install it manually. Downloading it and install it using appdeploy.exe. BUT, NO. The app is DRM protected, disallowing side loading outside of marketplace.

    Why cant we install apps the usual way through marketplace on the WP emulator? Shouldn't the emulator expose the same features and possibilities as a physical device?
