Distributing beta builds


  • Is there a way to do 1 click deployment of .appx packages from a webpage? Looking for something similar to the way you can do 1 click adhoc installs on iOS or link directly to an APK to install on an Android device.

    I see the powershell scripts and other command line tools to install the packages, but is there a way to allow non technical users to click on a link on a webpage and have the cmdlets run automatically, or another method?

  • There isn't a canned way to do this. Developer side-loading is not designed as a general distribution system.

  • Would it be possible for us to implement this ourselves or is it not going to be allowed for security reasons? This is a pretty common use case while developing apps, not as a way to distribute to end users or enterprise but as a remote QA and/or in house beta testing.
