"Switch to the app" not working RRS feed

  • Question

  • I would like to make application install or switch from website, but having problem to make working.

    Currently, I am developing Windows8 Metro App with JavaScript using developer licence. So, the link "Get the app" is not working as expected because the app is not deployed to Windows App Store yet.

    If I installed the app using developer licence (not from Windows App Store), "Switch to the app" should be showing but it always shows "Get the app" link instead. How can I make working this? Just for sharing, I have used the following in meta tags:

    <meta name="msApplication-ID" content="'Package name' specified in mainfest file under 'Packaging' tag " />
    <meta name="msApplication-PackageFamilyName" content="'Package family name' specified in mainfest file under 'Packaging' tag " />

    Any information would be great. Thank you in advance.
