Remarks

The following points describe the use of the PrivilegedApplications element in a device metadata package:

  • The structure for the package identity is identical with the <Identity> element in the application manifest, so copy the elements from application manifest.

    Note  Associate the app with the Windows Store, before copying from the app manifest, because the process of associating your app will update the app manifest elements. See Step 2: Create device metadata for your Windows Store device app for more information on associating the app with the store.

  • To specify multiple packages, list the multiple package elements in the PrivilegedApplications element.

This is an example of a <PrivilegedApplications> element.


<PrivilegedApplications>
	<Package>
		  <Identity Name="64022FABRIKAM.FabrikamDeviceApp" 
              Publisher="CN=05558413-FFF6-4AA5-8176-AD43036533FA"
              AccessCustomDriver="false" />	
 </Package>
</PrivilegedApplications></SoftwareInfo>


Here is an example of the Application Manifest.
