Using Device Manager, you can deploy apps to Windows Phone 8 users by
creating an Enterprise Hub policy in Device Manager and then deploying the
policy to users. On their devices, this policy will appear as the Windows Worx
Home app. Once deployed, you can then provide Windows Phone 8 apps to users
using deployment packages.
In order to provide Windows Phone 8 apps from the Windows Mobile app
store or from your own development teams, you need to perform the following
setup tasks as described on the
Windows Phone 8 development center
Note: Make sure that you follow these setup tasks in the order
presented, and ensure that you build the Enterprise Hub and add it to the
Windows Phone 8 Base Package in Device Manager before you enroll your Window
Phone 8 users. If not, they will not receive the Worx Home app store and will
have to reenroll to receive it.
The general setup tasks are as follows:
- Register a company account on Windows Phone Dev Center and acquire
an enterprise certificate from Symantec. Visit the
Enterprise Mobile Code Signing Certificate Web site and complete the
required steps to acquire an enterprise mobile code signing certificate.
- You will receive an application enrollment token (AET) with the
.aetx extension. This file will be used in the policy created in Device Manager
that you will deploy to your Windows Phone 8 devices.
- Obtain the Citrix developed Worx Home app store app on the Device
Manager server at the following location: \Citrix\XenMobile Device
- Sign the Citrix Enterprise Hub app (CitrixWorxHome.xap) as well as
any internally developed apps you want to distribute using the Microsoft app
signing tool (XapSignTool.exe).
- Using the Device Manager web console,
a Windows Phone 8 Enterprise Hub policy and add the package to the
Windows Phone 8 base package located under the Deployment tab.
your Windows Phone 8 users.
- Optionally, you can add Windows Phone 8 apps you want to distribute
to the base package package or create a separate package to deploy the apps.
Apps can be from the Windows app store or internal apps you develop in-house.
Note that for all internal apps, they must be signed with the certificate
before you deploy them.
