    How to Transfer Windows 8 Apps From one PC to another?


    Hi all,
    I have slow internet connection (2G Network) and that too has limited Data... So I download Windows 8 apps by downloading them with IDM and use Tokens Extractor to get appx links... But I wanted to know if I copy Asphalt 8 from my friend's PC from C:/Program Files/Windows Apps to My USB Drive How Can I install them on my PC... If there is a registery problem with it, How can I do it too? Please Help Me... I cannot Download It on my PC....

    Thanks,
    N'ayam

    There is no simple way to transfer apps from one PC to another. Mainly because, there is stuff spread all over the place, not just files in Program Files. And then, as you mentioned, there is the Registry -- which is not one file, but is a collection of files.

    Your best bet, if you downloaded an installer, is to copy that installer to a USB drive and then copy that to each PC you want to have that app.
