Unable to complete GetApplications operation.

If the calling peer is not subscribed to the PeerContact associated with the specified PeerEndPoint the RefreshData method must be called prior to calling this method.

While the caller is not required to sign-in to the collaboration infrastructure for this method to complete successfully, a successful call to RefreshData or one of the Subscribe methods must have been completed while the caller was previously signed in.

This functionality is only exposed on the PeerContact class. This functionality is not exposed on any other type of peer for security reasons.

Notes to Callers

Calling this method requires a PermissionState of Unrestricted. This state is created when the peer collaboration session begins.
