    Managing Surface RT app installs

    How are people managing app installs from the Microsoft App Store on Surface RT tablets?

    We're at a bit of a loss as to how to do this sensibly, on shared devices, without giving our 'pupil' account on the devices access to the Microsoft account.

    I hear SCCM 2012R2 can do this as a managed mobile device however I have not put that into practise yet.

    It can, but only if you have an InTune subscription which integrates into it.

    I've just come up against the same problem! Have you come up with a solution yet? Thankfully I've only got 19 to install one app on for pupils so it won't be a major headache this time, but in the future it could be!

    Aargh! Anyone any solutions for this. I've found the policy to completely disable the store, but I ideally only want to stop pupils downloading apps, but the apps we do have installed (only Zinio at the moment) to still be able to update.

    You say "policy", where is this policy? Are there others that can restrict how these are used?

    You need to enable the local group policy service and then set in Local computer group policy object > user config > admin templates > Windows components > Store > Turn off the store application
