    Package App Ruels

    Well i cant get the Package app rules to work.

    I tried t install the RSAT on a windows 8 Enterprise but it fails. despite following the instructions here RSAT Tools for Windows 8 RTM

    So i setup a virtual machine with Win 8 Release Preview on and installed the tools fine. created the policy and added the App Rules Enforced the Policy but they just don't seem to work you cans till click on the store or the games it should say this app has been blocked by your administrator Group Policy Central

    I tried changing the version numbers to * but no joy..

    Anyone got this working yet?

    Have you tried a VM of 2012, if under VL you should be able to get a hold of it and it should work for 30 days without activation.

    Yeah I've got a couple 2012 servers now but the apps only show up if they are on the machine I tried that first. As there aren't any metro apps on the server tHey don't show up when you create the rules. :-s

    Sounds like you need RSAT for Windows 8:
    Download: RSAT for Windows 8 - Microsoft Download Center - Download Details
    http://social.technet.microsoft.com/...wnload%20links

    They are for RP but should work fine on RTM.

    Yup this is the problem... I’m not to worried as the metro apps I want to block don’t work because of filtering but it would just be cleaner... I’m resigned to waiting for RSAT for windows 8 proper

    Another option would be to completely remove the apps from your Windows image via DISM or the Remove-AppxProvisionedPackage PowerShell cmdlet. e.g.

    Code:
    dism /Remove-ProvisionedAppxPackage /PackageName:Microsoft.Bing_1.2.0.137_x86__8wekyb3d8bbwe
    dism /Remove-ProvisionedAppxPackage /PackageName:Microsoft.BingFinance_1.2.0.135_x86__8wekyb3d8bbwe
    dism /Remove-ProvisionedAppxPackage /PackageName:Microsoft.BingMaps_1.2.0.136_x86__8wekyb3d8bbwe
    dism /Remove-ProvisionedAppxPackage /PackageName:Microsoft.BingNews_1.2.0.135_x86__8wekyb3d8bbwe
    dism /Remove-ProvisionedAppxPackage /PackageName:Microsoft.BingSports_1.2.0.135_x86__8wekyb3d8bbwe
    dism /Remove-ProvisionedAppxPackage /PackageName:Microsoft.BingTravel_1.2.0.145_x86__8wekyb3d8bbwe
    dism /Remove-ProvisionedAppxPackage /PackageName:Microsoft.BingWeather_1.2.0.135_x86__8wekyb3d8bbwe
    dism /Remove-ProvisionedAppxPackage /PackageName:Microsoft.Camera_6.2.8514.0_x86__8wekyb3d8bbwe
    dism /Remove-ProvisionedAppxPackage /PackageName:microsoft.microsoftskydrive_16.4.4204.712_x86__8wekyb3d8bbwe
    dism /Remove-ProvisionedAppxPackage /PackageName:Microsoft.Reader_6.2.8516.0_x86__8wekyb3d8bbwe
    dism /Remove-ProvisionedAppxPackage /PackageName:microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps_16.4.4206.722_x86__8wekyb3d8bbwe
    dism /Remove-ProvisionedAppxPackage /PackageName:microsoft.windowsphotos_16.4.4204.712_x86__8wekyb3d8bbwe
    dism /Remove-ProvisionedAppxPackage /PackageName:Microsoft.XboxLIVEGames_1.0.927.0_x86__8wekyb3d8bbwe
    dism /Remove-ProvisionedAppxPackage /PackageName:Microsoft.ZuneMusic_1.0.927.0_x86__8wekyb3d8bbwe
    dism /Remove-ProvisionedAppxPackage /PackageName:Microsoft.ZuneVideo_1.0.927.0_x86__8wekyb3d8bbwe
