    Adding Metro Apps to an Image

    Hi how are you guys deploying metro apps like freshpaint etc. to your windows 8 machines?
    Im unable to do it in audit mode and I cant do it by group policy.

    Ive been given a huge list of apps that the teachers would like. Maby im thinking to old skool on this problem.

    Cheers

    Colin

    Ok so far I have managed to download freshpaint.appx
    copied to a usb stick. Done clean install of 8.1 enterprise.
    logged in in audit mode - enabled sideloading GPO, then in powershell ran add-appxpackage e:\freshpaint.appx -
    but im missing a dependency "missing Microsoft.VCLibs.120.00"
    any idea how to get this? I can get it by loggin in with a live Id and downloading freshpaint from the store but then I get an error when running sysprep

    No expert here but believe you have two options. First of all if you have an upto date System Centre you can do it. Failing that you should be able to provision apps into an offline image using DISM.

    As for your dependency, I would preload that using DISM if it were me but again, not done this 100% as I am more into removing the things (make profiles too large for my liking).
