    A way to get Win 8 DP apps in CP working

    Hi there,

    Just wondering: Is there a way to get some of the apps from Developer Preview (like Labyrint and Piano) working in Consumer Preview?

    I tried to manually copy them, but eventually I got a container error and that was it.

    But the view is nice.

    All the apps and more will probably be available on Windows Store. I thought that there was a way to test them in Consumer Preview (for free) but no idea if that's possible (for example the copies of apps from Developer Preview). Metro adds a new layer to running apps and even improves security: Self-copied apps don't run compared to non-metro exes that just do their thing when double clicked (good ol' UAC always shows up when needed, I like that).

    If they don't run: they don't run. No problem with that.
