Under the hood: installation and updates for Metro style apps

Sign in to queue

Description

The days of writing setup installers are over! Windows 8 automatically handles installing, updating and removal of your apps, based on a declarative manifest that you provide. You’ll learn how the new Windows 8 deployment model lets you and your customers save time and money with faster development time, better system stability and smooth app updates. We’ll show you the nuts and bolts of how the model works; including authoring the app manifest, packaging and signing your app, installing and updating your app for each Windows user.

    Thanks for the link Cho! This was an interesting session, but not much info about updates. Does anyone know if users will be automatically notified about new versions of their apps? Or, are apps silently updated as new versions become available?

    It's too bad that the Q&A session isn't posted.  I missed this session at BUILD and would have loved to see what questions people asked.
