Slide1

Implementing an Enterprise App Store for Windows 8 and Windows 8.1

Michael Niehausmniehaus@microsoft.com

WCL331ASlide2

Windows Store Apps

The biggest change in Windows 8

Traditional Desktop Apps

Setup.exe installers

Windows Installer (MSI)

OneClick

(.NET)

App-V, Click-to-Run

Can be installed silently (usually)

Typically requires admin rights, usually installs per machine

Still used in Windows 8 (unchanged)

New packaging mechanismVery simple installation mechanismOnly used for Windows Store appsAlways installs quietlyDoes not require admin rights, always installs per userNew in Windows 8, essentially unchanged in Windows 8.1Slide3

Let’s agree on some terms

Windows Store apps

Modern, full-screen applications written to the

WinRT

API that run on Windows 8 and Windows RT.

Sometimes also called

WinRT

apps, modern apps, Windows 8 apps, and the “M” word.

Microsoft Account

An online account, formerly called a Live ID.

Windows Store

An online store for acquiring Windows Store apps, and an application by the same name on Windows 8 and Windows RT for accessing the online store. Requires a Microsoft account to install new apps (but not to install updates).Slide4

Let’s agree on some terms

Appx

files

A self-contained packaging format for Windows Store apps, effectively a zip file containing all the necessary components for the application, except for dependencies (which would also be

Appx

files).

Sideloading

The process of installing or provisioning Windows Store apps without going through the Windows Store. There are specific requirements to enable this.

LOB Apps

Line of business applications developed, developed and used by enterprises, although sometimes used as a substitute for “

sideloaded

app”.Slide5

Windows Store apps

Install via an “Enterprise App Store” using:

System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP1

Windows

Intune

Provision using the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2012 or DISM

Include in

sysprepped image

Customize Start screen layout

Provisioning

Installation

Register the application for the user

Always per-user

Does not require administrator rights

Side load or from the Windows Store

Register application on the computer

Install automatically for each user

Side load only

Requires administrator rights

Enterprise side loading requirements

Windows 8 Enterprise, domain joined or with a separate side load product key

Windows 8 Pro or Windows RT, with a separate side load product keySlide6

Demo:

Windows Store App nuts and bolts

NameSlide7

Automatic installation of updates

Group policy can disable auto install, but enabled by default

Updates can still install without a Microsoft account

Installation when the Windows Store is disabled

Group policy can disable the Windows Store for the user, but still allow updates to install

Disabling the Windows Store for the computer prevents update installation

Updates to in-box apps

Mechanism to update OS images with the latest version of apps

Avoids the immediate need for users to install updates

Handles scenarios where internet access isn’t available

Gift card purchasing

Apps can be purchased using gift cards, without each person using a credit card

Works behind proxy servers

Addresses common issue in Windows 8

Improvements in Windows 8.1Slide8

Why create an enterprise app store?

Users need different applications

Not all users need all apps

IT pros need a mechanism to deliver apps to users

Allow users discover available apps and make requests

Gather approvals, if necessary

Install the applications

Completely automated

Supports BYOD scenarios

IT will increasingly need to deliver apps to computers that aren’t company-ownedSlide9

Tools to create an enterprise app store

System Center 2012 Configuration Manager

On-premises solution using app catalog

Windows Intune

Cloud-based offering using Company Portal

Other solutions

Free tools like

http://companystore.codeplex.com/

can install apps using available APIs

Management tools can leverage APIs, PowerShell, or DISM commands to achieve the same thingSlide10

Demo:

Deploying and managing apps with System Center Configuration Manager

NameSlide11

Windows

Store apps install per user

Target user collections (push or pull)

Cannot

be installed via a task sequence

No native support for provisioning apps, but this can be done using standard software distribution and custom command

lines

You need to enable

sideloading

Set “Allow all trusted apps” policy

Deploy trusted root certificates

Join Active Directory with Windows 8.1 Enterprise, or install a

sideload

key

Requires the .

appx

installation files

Deep links” can be used, but the user must

log

in with a

Microsoft Account

and click “Install

Enables self-service app installation

Uses app catalog with

ConfigMgr

2012 SP1

A

dds Company Portal app for ConfigMgr 2012 R2Requires ConfigMgr 2012 SP1 or later

Using ConfigMgr: Things to RememberSlide12

and click “Install

Enables self-service app installation

Publish apps to the Company App Portal (Windows Store app)

Requires setting up

DirSync

Best with single sign-on

Windows 8.1 will be supported at GA

Using Windows Intune: Things to RememberSlide14

Demo:

Provisioning apps with the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit

NameSlide15

Focuses

on image creation scenarios

Provisioning apps in the image (Windows limit of 24 apps

)

Specify the name of the .

appx

file as the install command line

You can’t install apps from the Windows Store before

sysprepping

Only

provisioned apps can be syspreppedRequires MDT 2012 Update 1 for Windows 8, MDT 2013 for Windows 8.1

Using the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit: Things to RememberSlide16

Can

I customize the Start screen layout?

Yes, see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj134269.aspx for the basic process. This is easier with Windows 8.1 and the included PowerShell

cmdlets

to export and import the start screen layout.

Can I get the .

appx

files for <insert Microsoft app here>?

Presently, there is no mechanism available to provide

appx

files for Office (OneNote MX, Lync MX), Windows (updated versions of the in-box apps), etc. Third parties may provide these.

Can I prevent users from installing <insert Windows Store app>?

You can disable the Windows Store completely, or you can use

AppLocker

to whitelist or blacklist Windows Store apps

.

Frequently Asked QuestionsSlide17

Why

is the Windows Store disabled on Windows To Go?

With Windows 8, there could be licensing issues if the Windows To Go device is attached to too many different PCs. You can configure a policy to enable this if you want. This has been fixed with Windows 8.1, so the Windows Store will now be enabled by default.

Where can I get a

sideload

product key?

These are available to SA customers through the Volume Licensing Service Center, http://www.microsoft.com/licensing/servicecenter.

Frequently Asked QuestionsSlide18

Can

I use the Mail app without a Microsoft ID?

With Windows 8, no, you must specify a Microsoft ID even if you are going to be using Exchange or third-party IMAP for e-mail. This will be possible with Windows 8.1 via a group policy setting.

Can I programmatically install an app from the Windows Store?

While you can specify a “deep link” URL to navigate directly to a specific Windows Store app, you cannot initiate the installation. The user will need to click the “Install” button.
