How to Programmatically install/deploy a Windows 8 app from another Windows 8 app? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Here is my scenario. I have my windows store app and also I have some of my other windows store apps compiled as app packages. My requirement is whenever I open my primary windows 8 app, with the app packages I have for the other windows store apps which I have created, I need to programmatically(C#) deploy it to the device by gaining access to the app package.

    I can understand that it can be done through power-shell scripts but I want to achieve that within/from my windows 8 app. Any idea on this,thanks for your time and inputs in advance :)

  • There is a COM interface to the PackageManager that you could use. See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh446766(v=vs.85).aspx
