How to sideload a windows 8 app from Windows server 2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I am developing a windows 8 app for my organization and we want to sideload form the server without installing on each client PC. The Client's PC are in a specific Organization Unit. Can Anybody assist me in getting this done please.

  • you can sideload by using powershell, (e.g. Add-AppxPackage) which you can script, is that what you mean?

    You can use any method you like, to deploy/execute these powershell scripts, or there are other solutions like ConfigMgr or Intune (in case you might already have those available)

  • Yes that's what i meant but don't want to do it for just 1 Client PC. I want to be able to sideload to all client PC on an Organisation Unit from a remote location or environment.

  • you could try to deploy using Group Policy, perhaps a startup script or a logon script might work?
