  • Hi,

    Well, I'm sorry to say that there is no such known practice for this. You might still need to make some limitations inside the app for home/company.

  • Hi,

    How you distribute the LOB app? Currently it seems not possible to stop user installing LOB apps in their home pc if you are using Microsoft Store for Business or Microsoft Store for Education. 

    I think their might be other ways to limit the usage of LOB app. Like restricting app to be used only in the company's LAN.

  • Hi Roy,

    Thanks for your response.

    Yes we are considering other techniques of tying an app to certain hardware, I wondered if there was a known best practice for LOB apps and stopping installations on devices the app is not intended for. i.e/ A Home PC

    Many Thanks
