In this Deployment Sessions video I take you through deploying a line of business app using System Center Configuration Manager 2012 SP1 to “side load” a Windows Store app. The app is in the form of an appx package, something that an ISV might give to a customer for them to deploy internally.
If you want to try this at back at the office there are some things you’ll need to have:
- Build a lab environment using System Center Configuration Manager 2012 SP1 and Windows Server 2012.
- You will need to enable enterprise side loading using group policy, see Windows 8 Sideloading requirements on TechNet.
- The easiest way to test with the Windows 8 Enterprise evaluation.
- Finally you’ll need an app…You can run one up in moments with ZipApp.
