I felt so uneasy when people ask me - how to install windows 8 apps without windows store?

Because that time i was using Windows 7 on my computer but after using Windows 8 operating system, i realised - why they were asking me about how to install windows 8 apps without windows store.

As we all know, Windows 8 allows us to install apps only from the Windows Store. But if you wish to download any third party apps (the apps which is not available on windows store but you want to use on your Windows 8 system) that haven’t processed with the Microsoft security checks, you will have to enable an entry in the Local Group Policy for your computer in order to get it.

Whenever you download a third party app, you are not 100% sure that what you’re getting and the app you are downloading will fit from the OS and security of Windows.

While installing any Windows 8 app from the Windows Store, you know very well that Microsoft has evaluated the app and ensured that it’s as trustworthy as it should be. It will easily and completely fit from the OS and security of Windows also.

To install any third party apps, still two criteria must be following:
  • The app must be cryptographically sign by the developer

Step (6): If the app are matching with these two criteria, then now you can use Windows PowerShell to run the following command:

add-appxpackage C:\app1.appx –DependencyPath C:\winjs.appx

Here, 'app1.appx' is the app you wish to install. You can change this if required.

'winjs.appx' is the dependency for the app. You can also change this if needed, the dependency will be always included with the app.
