To update these Windows Store apps on computers that cannot connect to the Windows Store site by using the Internet, Microsoft has a collection of downloadable updates available on the Windows Update Catalog. These updates can be distributed by using System Center, WSUS and third-party equivalents, or slipstreamed into the operating system image that is used by your organization.
The intent of this process is not to bypass the Windows Store, but to enable computers that cannot connect to the Windows Store to update Windows Store apps on a recurring basis.
Frequently Asked QuestionsWhich Windows Store apps will be serviced through this channel?
Microsoft is releasing packages for Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 Windows Store apps that are listed in the release chart at the end of this article.
Will non-inbox Microsoft Windows Store app updates such as OneNote be released?
No. We are currently targeting the Windows Store apps that are distributed by default with Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 editions.
Can third-party Windows Store apps be updated by using this process?
No. The developer of the third-party app can make available the package, and it can then be sideloaded similar to line-of-business apps.
Will Microsoft continue to release updates?
Yes. Microsoft will update the inbox packages for Windows 8.1 for customers based on need. Please contact Microsoft support to request one or more packages be updated.
How do I get the updates?
These packages will be available through WSUS and the Windows Update Catalog.
Which languages are available?
The packages include all the languages currently supported through the Windows Store.
Which editions of Windows are supported?
Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 x86 and x64 editions are supported. Windows 8 RT and Windows 8.1 RT are not supported
Can I install these updates on Industry (Embedded) editions?
No, Industry editions are not licensed for these applications and therefore updates to these applications are not supported. If you have a need for Windows Store apps for Industry editions, please contact your account manager or open a support ticket for your request to be evaluated.
How do I create an image that includes these apps?
We recommend installing the app updates as part of your post operating system deployment updates through WSUS. However, if you need an automated process, you can extract each .cab file to its respective MSI. Then, you can script the installation or deploy by using traditional application deployment technologies.
I’ve already deployed Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 images, removing the inbox apps. Can I use this to reinstall them?
No. This process is only designed to update apps already installed on the system. If you are able to enable temporary access to the Windows Store, you can install the apps again and then maintain them by using this process. Or, you will need to deploy a new image that contains the apps.
Can the packages be installed offline?
No. You cannot use dism.exe to install the updates offline. They must be installed through the .MSI installer to a running operating system.
