    How do I transfer Win 8 DP Metro apps to Win8 CP or RP


    I have a question, is there a way to transfer metro apps from say Developer Preview to Consumer Preview or Release Preview. My kids kinda like Tree House Stampede and Tube rider.

    I don't remember what games are in Consumer Preview.
    As to Win 8 Release Preview, there are no games available.... except the XBox Live.

    You mean Win 8 Release preview doesn't even have Cut the Rope? Oh no!
    Actually, I want to bring Metro programs over from Developer Preview since if I install Release Preview I will have to install it on the partition I currently have Developer Preview on which would erase them, anybody know how to do this?

    There are games available, if you go into the store and go along to the games section they are there.

    Well I think I found the answer to my own question here;
    How do I install the developer preview metro apps on the consumer - Microsoft Answers
    Basically there is no way. If anybody has a better answer than this I would like to hear it.
